"Above Big Sur"
A step by step from study to studio painting
The first step is the block in with transparent washes
of similar colors to the finished painting, keeping in
mind the values that must be established. The white
of the linen will serve as my lightest value and the
darkest value will be the forground bush on the left.
Hint: completely covering the canvas with paint
during this stage will give you a better chance
at nailing down your value.
