Still no rain or wind here, Boeing closed down, as did the State government office I work at, so vacation for us. I worked on drawing a painting that I promised to try to do for a friend, I'm not particularly happy with it, but I'm going to ink it and paint it and let her decide whether it goes in the bin. In my journal I did some value studies after watching Lesson 4 of Liz Steel's Buildings2016 online class where she talked about shadows vs cast shadows. Marc Taro Holmes carries 24 half pans 3 values of each color family because he doesn't want to bother mixing colors. Liz carries fewer colors, but more than the 12 I've got in my box. So I may be re-thinking my color palette yet again.
