Mount Manaio, New Zealand

My second attempt to do a master class exercise by Richard Robinson. I completely redid this painting as my values and perspective were way off!!!. I am much happier with it now. I also limited my palette to the three colors, C. Yell. Pale, Aliz, crimson, Ultramarine blue plus white, per Kevin MacPherson's recommendation. I feel like all the reading, viewing and painting is starting to pay off as I seem to be more conscious of value, temperature and perspective. My husband and I will be leaving for New Jersey for a month.... so I am hoping not to lose my skills I have gained so far. I have set a goal of continuing my sketch books work on the human figure. I am now on the muscles!!! As a nurse it should be easy and I can visualize them but to actually draw them is other story. I will be keeping up with everyone's blogs but doubt I will get to post. We shall see. Have a wonderful end of summer
