Getting ready to paint...the value of a value sketch

graphite pencil 5" x 7" $30

Ok. All of the trees are decorated and so are other areas of the house, gifts are wrapped, parties are in the workings, shopping is done and now I can go back to painting. I am ready for Christmas. In another week I will be baking up a storm...and some cookies, too.
Here is a little value sketch that I just completed for a future painting. It was from a fall photo that I took, but with this snow and ice storm that we were hit with last night... I think it just might be a winter scene. I love to plan out my paintings with these little sketches so I can decide on value, design and color. Come back and see what it becomes.
