sketchbook :: a practice sketch

In my 12 x 9 inch Kilimanjaro sketchbook, I am working on establishing my dark values more quickly when I paint, with this sketch from a photo of Edisto marshes. I am not entirely pleased with this one but do like the sky.

the whole thing is very nice, not just the sky :)

I think the values are dark enough, don't want them much darker unless you wanted a really dark looking painting?

I wonder what it would look like if you were pleased with it...it looks gorgeous to me! Yummy colors!

Ooh, I love this one, Ann! What is not to love? The colors are vibrant and alive and gorgeous!

To my eye Ann this looks like nothing to be unhappy about. Very beautiful and your colors are gorgeous. Have a super day.
