I want to recommend Jaspers color workshop to artist of any level. She teaches around the country from coast to coast. Today we worked on a landscape on red grounds, which I have done before, but still learned from. I still obviously need to work on value, but also on creating depth with simplicity. For todays landscape we created two studies of our reference photo, for me it was a photo I took of my favorite childhood place in Arizona. We did one value study and one color study, both meant to be discarded. By the end of the day I was a bit frustrated with my painting but I will work on it again tomorrow after a night off. I am very happy with my little color study and will make a point of doing this more often if not all the time.
