Value Study and Building Study 9 x 12 on Panel
I recently took a 2 day workshop with Bill Davidson. He is a plein air painter . During this workshop we were to copy his paintings so first he started out doing a value study of one his building painting. A value study is to get your lightest light and darkest dark and then the in between values. After that we let that dry and mixed our colors. Then we painted the colors on top of the value study. My style is different from Bill's as you can see he painted a lot on my painting with big brushstrokes and a more impressionistic style.
