Serious Shadow


This is another little scene from NYC. I'm still playing around with my brush hold, and really paying attention to where the darkest values are, and not going as dark anywhere else. Do you see how the dark values on the right side of the street are not as dark as those on the cars and left side?

Since my book is coming out in less than a month, I thought I'd tantalize you with some shots of the inside. To start with, here's the table of contents (click to see larger) -->

Hi Carol, darks, can be soooo tricky at times, to dark, not dark enough...cripes! Can't wait for the book! Did my pre order months ago, I hope they don't forget it! ¦~]

More expensive on Kindle than paperback??? ($20 vs $14). What is going on with Amazon?

Carol Marine said...

Thanks you guys! I thought I had a good handle on value, but there is always more to learn!

Tom, I completely agree. I've heard the explanation before, about why it's like that, and it's super complicated. Ugh.
