NEW LESSON

THIS IS THE LAYIN OF THE DRAWING I PREVIOUSLY POSTED.
    I TOOK MY TIME TO GET THE MOVEMENT IN THE WATER AND THE FIGURE DOING THE RESCUE TO SHINE.
    I ALSO WANTED TO GET A GENERAL FEEL FOR THE LIGHT THAT WAS SHINING ON THE SUBJECT OF INTEREST.
    THE COLORS WHERE ALSO IMPORTANT AT THIS STAGE AS THEY WOULD DETERMINE HOW REAL THIS PAINTING LOOKED.
    I THINK IT WAS A GOOD START.  WHAT DO YOU THINK?
NOTE: I HAVE A NEW ON LIDE GALLERY I AM SHOWING ON. CHECK IT OUT. http://www.yessy.com/newartprints

NEW PASTEL LESSON

THE SKETCH:
THIS IS THE DRAWING OF MY NEW PAINTING NAMED COAST GUARD WATER RESCUE.
THIS IS THE DRAWING WHICH I HAVE ALREADY TRANSFERED TO THE SURFACE ( WALLIS PAPER) THAT I WILL BE PAINTING ON. THE DRAWING ID NOT SHADED OR DETAILED. THAT LEAVES ME FREE TO DO COLOR MOTES SEPARATE FROM THE ACTUAL DRAWINGS. COLOR NOTES ARE SMALL COLOR SKETCHES OF PARTS OR THE PAINTING THAT WILL BE DONE. THIS STEP SOLVES MOST OF THE PROBLEMS YOU MIGHT RUN INTE WHILE DOING THE ACTUAL PAINTING.

PASTEL LESSON 4

THIS IS THE STAGE WHERE IT SHOULD BE CLOSE TO THE FINISH. YOU SHOULD TWEEK ALL THE LIGHTS, DARKS, DRAWING, AND PAYING ATTENTION TO THE EDGES.
EDGES VARRY FROM HARD, SOFT, AND ALL THE STAGES IN-BETWEEN. ALSO YOU SHOULD PUSH THE COLOR INTENSITY (CROMA).
I ALSO DECIDED TO LET THE SMOKE COME FORWARD AND ENGULF HIS LEGS.

PASTEL LESSON 3

THIS IS THE TIME YOU ADJUST EVERYTHING TO THE PROPER VALUES. THAT IS DARKS A LITTLE DARKER AND LIGHTS A LITTLE LIGHTER.
REMBER YOU ARE ALWAYS CORRECTING THE DRAWING. REFINING THE NEGATIVE AND POSITIVE SPACES.
THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT STAGE OF DEVELOPING THE DRAMA IN YOUR PAINTING. SO PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU WANT TO EXPRESS IN YOUR PAINTING.

NEW PAINTING LESSON

THIS IS THE FINISHED LAY-IN. I CONCENTRATED ON COVERING THE ENTIRE PAINTING SURFACE LEAVING OUT DETAIL. THAT IS OTHER THAN THE STATUE OF LIBERTY. I COULDN'T HELP MYSELF. I GOT CARRIED AWAY.
I WANTED TO SEE IF THE DRAMA I WANTED TRANSLATED TO THE PAINTING. I THINK IT DID.

NEW PAINTING PROCESS

IT TOOK A LONG TIME TO PUT THIS DRAWING TOGETHER. I WANTED TO PAY TRIBUTE TO THE HEROS AT 9-11. THIS IS WHAT I CAME UP WITH.
FIRST I GATHERED THE PHOTOS I WOULD USE. THEN I PUT THEM TOGETHER TO GET THE PICTURE YOU WILL SEE. I TRANSFERED THE IMMAGE TO THE PAINTING SURFACE.
I THEN BEGAN THE LAYIN PROCESS.
THIS IS THE RESULT OF THE TRANSFERED DRAWING AND THE START OF THE LAYIN.
