Every now and then, it's good to go back over
what you know and do a little refresher exercise, such
as a study in values. I had an image I wanted to paint
and since there were so many trees and dappled
light, I thought it would be a good image to practice
my sense of values before going on to the color version.
This helps to see where your darks and lights should
be, respectively. This is Woodward Park on a summer
day when visiting with my son and his daughter Claire.
Nice place to go feed the squirrels. Oils on masonite
