Season – Optional
Size – 16 x 20 Acrylic – Horizontal Format
In this assignment I will be focusing on your ability to blend the numerous gray tones in a gradated fashion so as to make the transition from cloud formation to cloud formation very subtle with soft – yet defined edges. I will also be looking at the way you arrange the large foreground boulders as well as your value system for creating depth. One word of advice on this painting: Be very sure that your paint is nice and creamy which will help greatly in blending your clouds to helping eliminate the rough scratchy look when a mixture is too dry.
Value changes – this painting should have 4-5 value changes.
