Peter Sheeler does it again – another video to learn from. This is from Hawaii, and as Peter notes in his video, he has never in his life drawn a palm tree. I actually think this might be a banana tree – we use them as decorations in my neighborhood. This doesn’t matter, though; Peter’s mastery is what I wanted to learn from. My take below.
My contrast is nowhere as attractive as Peter’s. I am a bit more muddied. Part of it is because I am not using either Sap or Hooker’s Green, both which I prefer to Viridian, which is part of the palette I pulled out to use. My own preference is Hooker’s, as it is a wonderful green to add yellow or blue, for brightening or darkening.
Another comment, this is some of the Bee 6×9 paper I bought. A bit of a sizing issue seemed to be “felt” in a couple of spots on the paper. Still, for quick studies, I am not faulting the paper at all – I have been enjoying using it.
