7x10 pastel and watercolor on mounted wallis
When creating light (especially with fog) I find it best to stay away from dark values, except for accents. Today the lake was covered in a misty fog, meaning values 5-10, high key. I was painting on top of an old painting so I used a lot of Chinese White mixed into the pigment. I tried to keep in a very limited value range (5-10), similar to how Sanford Gifford makes light.
How many times will I paint this lake? hmmmmm I think I will never tire of it as it is always different.
