(7 minutes)  In this video, I show how starting with a monochromatic underpainting will help establish values and capture the pattern of light and shadow in preparation for adding local color.  Even though this approach is most often used in the studio, it can also be used outdoors, en plein air. This is part of the pastel supplement to the basic Plein Air Essentials course.  I recommend you take the basic Plein Air Essentials course first.

This is part of the pastel supplement to the basic Plein Air Essentials course. I recommend you take the basic Plein Air Essentials course first.
