Underpainting Sunlight and Shadow by Maggie Price

"San Simeon Bluff"  pastel by Maggie Price

"As a general rule, on a sunny day, colors in sunlight are lighter in value than colors in shadow. The darkest color in fall sunlight will appear lighter in value than the lightest color in full shadow. This simple method helps you analyze areas of sunlight and shadow, and keep your values (light and dark) and temperature (warm and cool) clear throughout the painting."   This tutorial-demonstration is from the book,"Painting with Pastels" by Maggie Price.
