Folks were asking, so I thought I'd share how the
"Simplified Shadow Mass" exercise went today.
(See yesterdays post)
I knew I would be in trouble with that orange background (see below) so last minute,
I decided to change it to a grey green.

You can already feel the drama!

We all had such fun! This exercise is a wonderful tool for learning how to design a dramatic composition, compare and exaggerate the lights and darks, and in general, just have fun with paint!
Everyone in the class did an incredible job and I wish I could post all of them.
Unfortunately, I didn't get photos of all of them!
