Autumn's Sneaky Ways
I know I will never truly be a tonalist since my true love is a more intense, higher chroma hue; but I am beginning to absorb pieces of what Deborah Paris says. A tonalist relies mostly on temperature with a few values. I am more comfortable with more value shifts and zingy color.
The watercolor underpainting was done on a pastel pencil loose grisaille (at home.) I tried to keep my neutrals in the underpainting to guide me. At the field I was once again free.
I am using my pastels with a lighter touch. More like a whisper.
