Don’t chase the light

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

In just half an hour, the light­ing has changed sig­nif­i­cantly. The sun is hit­ting the midground trees, re­mov­ing the value con­trast that high­lighted the tower. When this hap­pens, it’s crit­i­cal to stick to your orig­i­nal plan. If you chase the new light­ing, your paint­ing will end up in­con­sis­tent or you’ll just churn. In­stead, I’m paint­ing based on a com­bi­na­tion of ob­ser­va­tion, mem­ory and gen­eral light­ing knowl­edge.
