For this weeks lesson the students painted a tonal exercise on brown paper using one of Winslow Homer's tonal sketches. Normal brown paper was used which was taped onto a board. Of course it wrinkles so they had to be careful not to use too much water but as an excercise worked very well.
Great contrasts and simplification of form. Also lots of artistic license with the original which looked great!! If you look below and then look at an actual boat scene it doesn't seem so complicated to paint does it?
