Today I did the complete opposite of yesterday's exercise.
Instead of using NO MAP,
I did a PATTERN PAINTING of the same objects
by outlining the big shapes of light and shadow
and assigned each shape one color/value.
I used red acrylic to map out the shapes
on a board toned in yellow.
Both approaches help trick you into thinking "shape and value"
instead of subtle details.
(Anything to keep fussy pants away!)
Meanwhile, I thought I'd share a corner of my
warm and cozy "office."
So happy to go to work these days!
I just ordered some gouache.
Never used them before,
so stay tuned!
