When Life Gives You Lemons...

...Paint them!  

This was painted yesterday at my class, Patti Mollica 's How to Paint Fast and Bold. We start with a value study in charcoal for every painting.  This takes some time, but pays off in the end.  When you get the values correct the painting works.  I have this great app on my iphone "Value Viewer" so when my painting is complete, I check to make sure I have all the values correct.

Patti gives several homework assignments a week.  This week we have to do a gray color chart and a pear in mosaic style.  The purpose of this exercise is to translate colors to values.  I'll post them later this week.
