Meadow Croft Estate Step 1, the sketch


I have tried what Bruce Sherman shared on his blog. The process, first the sketch. I did this sketch in oil, using raw sienna.

  2. Hi Joan!.... Glad to see that "You" are "getting some good mileage" out of the tonal study start.

    It obviously works for you well and gives you a good foundation upon which to build structure and colour as the opainting process goes forward.

    I like what you have done with your muted palette- very wistful mood!
    Good work!

    Good painting!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

  4. Hi Bruce,

    Once again thank you. I have enjoyed the process. I love changing from fast to slow. Nicolidies. The master of gesture and contour in drawing has been one of my favorites. Have a great day.

    Warmest Regards to Your
    Joan
