# 27 Liz Cutler Jade plants on railing Acrylic sketch

This was from a photo with strong contrast. I did a thumbnail value sketch, transferred it to a 10x10 plywood panel gessoed with clear medium so the wood color could show through. I enjoyed the slicker surface and amy bring it beyond the sketch phase.

Liz- I love the strong values! I haven't tried acrylics on gesso- only used oils on gesso- this looks great.

interesting effects that you've achieved here.

I like the strong lights and darks in this. ... and the perspective.

Great value statement in this as well as the sense of depth into the background.
