Practicing After Theory
I drew this old wooden door from a photo reference and applied some of the shadow and 'throw' methods I learned from Karlyn. I liked the 'lighter version" (not shown) but decided to try to add a bit of the 'drama' using darks taught by Tom Jones. I thought I could go even darker on this one to pop out that spot of sunlight -- but chose not too -- choosing instead a softer approach than Tom's. This is my result.
I am fairly happy with it, though I wish I had made the spaces between the stones a little narrower .... next time, perhaps ...
Isn't it funny how APPLYING all that wonderful learning will take a while to truly incorporate??!! LOL
