Demo with Margaret Dyer

posted in: Blog | 3

Yesterday Margaret made a Demo which was really fascinating…

She starts with a loose characol drawing

She breaks down the picture into three values and starts with dark colors, but not with the too dark ones. At one point she adds black to be able to compare how dark her dark colors should be…

Within each value she plays with warm and cool colors and it’s a treat to watch her doing this.
The next day Margaret wasn’t too happy with the result and she wants to go back to the painting and do some corrections.
She’s trying to do it, while within the next days and I would like to show you what she did to it.

    I love M. Dyer's work so much. You are lucky to get to go to her workshop.

    This progress is like magic. Well recorded. The sense of volume is wonderful – to watch her build that is a treat.
