A value sketch (sketch to figure out the lights and darks) for a future painting of a stone wall on the Dunedin Peninsula. I am wanting it to be a fairly high key painting, with some very dark shadow contrasts, as it will be showing midday light.

Arches N.O.T. paper. I am starting to think I prefer the hot pressed paper. I was trying for a more graphic design look with solid blocks of colour painted with gum arabic. I think the N.O.T. paper isn't the best choice for this. I might re-try this painting a little later on.

Although I want to concentrate on finishing the previous Catlins painting, over breakfast I did a value sketch (a sketch that concentrates on figuring out the placement of lights and darks), of the sun setting on Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown.
