Painting Intensive Day 2

Day 2 of the painting intensive the instructions was to paint in the very highest values of the value scale (light light light with very little contrast) or in the very lowest value range dark dark dark with little contrast). I chose light because I tend to be comfortable with strong darks and contrasts. I'm here to learn new things so again I did a big painting mostly using vermillion and naples yellow and lots of white gouache. This looks rather like a stained canvas but it's a watercolor on 48"x 51" heavy arches watercolor paper.
