Peppers Update 2-6-09

Peppers 12" x 16" Pastels on Wallis
I'm getting nearer the end on this. Worked on it today and have some more things to do in class tomorrow. But I took a photo of this setup last Saturday, and then studied some of the colors in Photoshop. It's so amazing when you can isolate a color with the eyedropper tool you can see so clearly what the hue should be.....but you're standing in a dark studio for a couple of hours and you can't for the life of you get a handle on the darned color. ;-)
I'm also a little happier with the light and shadow structure than I was after last's week class.
Working on the hard and soft edges tomorrow should help with leading the eye through the painting.
