|'Drama in the Afternoon II' 9x12 pastel ©Karen Margulis|
It's all about Value. Value is the key to success with color.
You've probably heard the saying the VALUE does all the work but COLOR gets the glory. Commit it to memory. If you create a strong map of values....dark shapes, light shapes and middle value shapes. All you need to do is follow the map with the appropriate value pastel. Trees can be green or fuchsia but as long as the value is correct it will look like a tree.
