As the expression goes, "the teacher will appear when the student is ready". AND was I ready. Mary showed us how to work from two photo references and I finally learned how to distinguish from referencing and duplicating.
Mary' Palette and initial laying in of darks after sketch. She uses Vasari paint. The three primary color Cad Yellow light/pale, Cad Red, and Ultramarine Blue plus the 8 grays created for Scott Christenson by Vasari. I fell in love with the pallet.
