I never stopped smiling while in Orvieto but my favorite time was while in the studio with Misty and all of the beautiful Artist.
In my little town, I just don't get to share art space like that.
Here, a study of values and seeing light and dark shapes.
With reference in hand Misty challenged us to start without a sketch, lay in the dark shapes with charcoal and then manipulate the charcoal to get all of the values.
I was satisfied to find Professor Doctor Tad Keys right there in the studio of Orvieto. No need to travel to Pelago.
Dot snapped this one from here side of the studio. Thank you Dot!
Next up: Do the same thing but with paint and and no sketch.
Me still smiling on the last evening when we showed and shared.
