Two-Value Studies in Black and White - NFS

6/27/10 "Two-Value Studies in Black and White", Oil
I was so energized by the Peggi Kroll Roberts workshop that I got up this morning and painted three small landscapes before breakfast. But first I want to show you what we did at the workshop--not because my paintings are incredible, which they are not, but because doing these types of modest exercises are so basic to getting the foundations of painting into my head and I want to keep a record of the experience. It is so easy to forget and go back to the old way of doing things. So the first morning we started off with 10 minute (I think they were 10 minute--my mind is already forgetting) quick sketches using two values in black and white.
