Tom's demo 1st day with Dan and Mary
Dan and Mary watching intently
Here's the demo start . Painted on a mid grey acrylic ground. He started by filling in the light  shapes with white. The darks were then painted thinly into the mid grey areas, very effectively creating the 3 dimensional aspect of this piece.With this established value pattern you could then start concentrating on the color.
Walkway  Janitzio Is. Patzcuaro - here is the demo in color. It's almost finished. There are a couple figures in the center to be developed a little more. You can really see from the intial start how faithful the color is to the original values of the  under painting. This was a great demo to watch and everyone learned so much.
And HERE is the finished painting below. WOW!
