Demo Stage 1

These three images represent the stages of a process explored in a recent workshop with the wonderful painter and teacher, Morton Kaish, at the Sedona Arts Center. Though we were working from costumed models in the workshop, it was suggested that the process would be very applicable to a landscape scenario. In this first stage, over a ground of Ultramarine Blue at a value of about 3-4, a charcoal line drawing is made exploring the topographical qualities of the image and the major shapes of value. Then a brush with black acrylic paint is used to create a very solid drawing for the next stage.
