progress {lesson in light & dark}

adding the lights and darks is always a challenge if you didn't add those as you were working. a week ago i had a post called levels, which i loved the work i had, but once i photographed the work, seemed flat and like the paintings were not finished......

after that seeing my post, i had decided that the paintings needed more lights and darks. the lights- those are somewhat easy. white, cream, or any light seemingly can be applied "lightly" and maybe be even somewhat translucent; but, darks....those are dark- even if you are not using black. and can easily be overwhelming if you are not careful.

i think i am making progress...i like the depth that the darks added to the painting. thoughts?

hoping to find some studio time....happy saturday!
