Instructor – Jan Faerber
Ideally you should use a quarter sheet (15” x 11”) for this project. If you open the attached line drawing in Adobe Acrobat select poster when you open the print dialog and it will print the image across 2 8 1/2” x 11” pieces of paper that you can piece back together to trace.
Draw lightly with pencil from lined picture given , the actual leaves and their shadows on 11×15, 140# watercolor paper.
Shade lightly the shadows with pencil.
Use your regular palette and supplies. It’s easier to have Payne’s gray or a substitute ready for the shadows, but we will be dropping some colors into the shadows while they are wet. We will be learning about shadows as they come close to objects and how they look the farther away they become. There are diffuse shadows in the background of the photo from a palm tree that is not shown.
