Paynes Prarie, Value Study, Plein Air, Alla Prima

Paynes Prairie Study
4.5 x 6 inches

Not Available

These are value studies I did at the workshop Saturday. We did about ten different exercises, not including warm ups. The goal here was to use limited values. The dark values could not be black or even dark gray, and the lights could not get very white. The color study had to follow the same values, only using color. I really liked this exercise, as it forced me to think through the whole process and not just slap it on in a hurry.
I plan to paint a larger painting of the color study and see if I can keep the subtle changes in value.

Thanks for looking!
