Tonal Studies

I’m getting ready to start my larger paintings, buying paper and paints and new brushes. In the meantime, I’ve been working on some quick studies of landscape views that I captured in plein air paintings or photos. Here are ten tonal studies, quick sketches meant explore possible larger compositions. For color I used only burnt umber and Prussian blue. These were brand new tubes of Daniel Smith watercolors, which turned out to be fantastic – rich, deep colors and great texture.
