Four Layer Translation
|From the Bridge Bill Teitsworth
The array of paintings on the wall for this week’s critique was most impressive. Then we went and dove headfirst into the plein air puddle….
I think we should follow that with another translation of a complicated image into 4 layers: Lights, Mid-values, darks and super darks.
If you get the chance, try a plein air subject, but if the weather doesn’t cooperate, look for something that seems daunting at first, but resolves nicely into layers. Be prepared to describe how you saw the scene in terms of layers.
