After listening to a full day for Richard's amazing wisdom and having the time for one painting (post that another time.) I was not prepared to stop. I grabbed a bite to eat and headed for one beautiful slough (long bodies of water made to bring water to crops). This year Richard is teaching a method that uses the grisaille, watercolor and then pastel. Really cool for making values correct. I am working hard at color harmony (as always) and for this one done on my time I condensed and took out the sky. I will post much more Richard wisdom when I have time. He is AMAZING! I have been fornute to work with him for many years now. He always pushes me another step and then I can go back and work in the studio for a year....re-energized
The whole time I was painting the kingfisher was calling to his mate. This is for them. I love kingfishers!
