Oil on gessoboard
And thus, the start of my Value challenge week. The reasoning behind it is twofold: one, I do need to work on value structure and identifying values; two, I was bouncing all over the city for a weekend and didn't want to take my entire kit. It's notacopoutnotacopoutnotacopout mostly because I did actually make an effort to learn about values as I worked.
I don't remember where I got this stone, but it's pleasingly scooped out and in general an interesting shape. Clearly I am easily amused.
