"Morning's First Hug" (sold)


6"x6"
Oil on Board

As to the painting of the whites on yesterday's post, I meant to mention (for the benefit of anyone whose been in my drawing classes and may be reading this) that I ended up making myself a value scale in order to find the correct values in that painting. It was difficult putting together color and value and I found that I really needed the scale. The values make so much difference in a painting coming out the way you want it to. I find that when something doesn't feel right, it can often be corrected by making something lighter or darker.
