Early start today. Waiting at the reservoir, chai in my hand I watched the sun come up from behind the clouds. I really did miss the reservoir.
The dominant color was a very subdued, dusty, melon- gold with equally subtle violet threading through the shadows. Everything was toned down due to the overcast nature of the morning so I started with a grey gold value underpainting.
Warm/ cool relationships are very important, especially when neutral hues ( or maybe always:-).
