Calm River

"Calm River" (pastel, 8x10 inches)  click here to bid or buy

My final Sunday demo of last weekend's workshop. I always try to work in at least one landscape. With this one I showed my students how you can calm down a complex landscape photo by simplifying the basic value patterns in the underpainting.

See the progress shots:

This was how I left it at the demo. I had added the sky but today I didn't like it, so re-introduced more shrubbery back there before calling it done.

Thanks for watching! Please share!
