Two Family Home 1 - A Work in Progress

Today was the first day of the Brian Atyeo workshop.

It was a learning experience; especially about the importance of preliminary sketches to get your tonal values correct before you start painting. Brian works on a scale of five tonal values in his paintings as well as strong use of shape and contrasts.

I did a number of sketches of a painting of a barn I would like to do at a future date and Brian's comments concerning the tonal values were very helpful.

I started a small painting of his demonstration piece. The painting still needs a little more work before it is complete. I will post the finished piece at a later date.
