Shapes in Colour and in Black and White

These are two of the exercises from the pastel demonstrations that were held at KAGS over the weekend (see postings on 20 October 2012 and 21 October 2012).

The first exercise was to use one colour to create a sphere and a cylinder to get the values in a picture, as well as using a light source for highlight, graduated tones, reflected light, shadow and cast shadow.

The second exercise was to use four colours; a warm colour for the high lit areas, a mid tone colour for the main shape and a cool colour for the shadows with a neutral for the background.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my artwork and I hope you will return often.
