|The shiny parts are just a reflection of light from the overhead light. The shadows on the sand are all the same value.|
The intent is for the sky and sand to be the lightest colors. I will be doing some spattering in the sand when I decide to make a larger picture in color. The water will be darker than the sky but lighter than the shadows, and the grasses will be a mix of lights and darks.
I have also sketched EDM #209 (Draw a shadow) for today's exercise. It is interesting to see the transformation of the Lamy fountain pen from blue to blue green to green.
I've had a quick breakfast and a couple of cups of coffee and now need to get in the shower before Carol gets here. She and I are going shopping in East Lansing. I need a dress for a couple of upcoming weddings. I am a wash and wear, give me a pair of sweats kinda girl and buying a dress doesn't excite me at all. As a matter of fact, I am not looking forward to this shopping trip at all, except for a chance to spend some time with Carol. I have to remember to focus on the positive. If I have success finding a dress that will work for both a late July wedding and a mid-September wedding, I will indeed be pleased.
I hope to have more to share with you tomorrow.
