Yesterday I started a 4 day workshop with my friend and former classmate Scott Tallman Powers. We spent the morning in Uptown watching a few demos and went over some key tips specific to painting in the city outdoors. Even covering how to deal with people.
After we broke for lunch I got started on a few value studies pieces. A great way to break into the comfort zone of painting outside and getting a longer painting session started off right. You can either use an umber or black for the two color value study.
