Peonies Galore

This was very difficult to do.............I followed the Perrin Method and was able to lay down my value structure.

Revisiting Module 1......practice

I am going through the lessons again and really studying what I have learned....I have found that I did miss a lot and so this has been very helpful....I was focusing on strong lighting from a single direction...5 value that could be clearly read....good paint quality.
