#5 Rust - Camille

I found this sketch I'd done some time ago and thought I would give it a try.  I had a little trouble with my lighting as it was not correct in my sketch.  I usually put a reference in the corner of my paper to remind me of the light source, but was well into painting before I remembered...next time!  I painted this on 140# Arches.

I love the way you preserved the white of the paper. I can't tell you didn't have a clear light source, it reminds me of after a rain when the sun comes out and the light reflects off of everything.

I really love this one and I totally agree with Kristin....Its like the sun is overhead!

Lovely spontanity! And I appreciate how you left some whites. I'm never good at doing that.
