about 11x11 pastel on somerset
I decided to continue the challenge. With value only I tried to create the feeling of the sun sinking below the horizon. To do this I focused on keeping the land masses dark, trying only to give light to the few places the sun's last light would touch. Making clouds with value only was the trickiest part! This will help me with the painting I began last week. My soccer field.
I wanted to share with you that my painting, Sunshine on my Shoulder, took 3rd place in the Maryland Pastel Society's show. I just found out about this happy moment!
