Worked up my refined sketch, making the changes we discussed.
I scanned it and worked up my values on the computer. Still had some changes. Rebecca is helping me see things from a purely abstract sense, regarding the placement of shapes and values as they relate to each other. Here are the corrections in red.
And the final sketch.
Now to print it out, apply acrylic matte medium, and then oil glazes, keeping the colors very muted...subtle jewel tones ala Rackham and Dulac. That's the plan.
I must tell you how wonderful it is to be "connected" to the other students in this class. I don't feel so isolated here in my little studio. I know that twice a week, I can engage with them, share frustrations, learn from their skills and opinions and of course, receive valuable info from the instructors.
