stage 1, stage 2
6x8 inches on prepared board.....
I'm still amazed that smears of paint (or charcoal) can turn into something recognizable. This group of horses around the hay bale started with no drawing, just shapes of values spotted around. Click on the first image and you'll see no lines, just a bunch of mistakes that get corrected as I go. I try to pay attention to the really big shapes, then the arrangement of dark and light shapes. A blob here, a dark spot there, link them, and voila! it begins to resemble something. I'll post the finished version next, which is not much different from this one.
