D'Alessandro workshop

Just finished taking a workshop at San Diego Watercolor Society with Sandi D'Alessandro. Wonderful workshop! I highly recommend it! Sandi really stretched our imaginations with color and creative exercises. I worked and worked this painting - we started with a charcoal value drawing on a gessoed surface - then applied layers of acrylic. I couldn't get the values and hues that I needed and became really frustrated. I added soft pastels on top in my studio and felt a lot better about the work.

I call this piece "Agave Excelente" It still might not be finished......
