We will explore two ways to approach under-painting. Our subjects will be a tractor and sunflowers, a close up of not more than three flowers. These should be easy photos to take this time of year. Older tractors are more interesting, but anything handy will do. Your photo could be a close up of an interesting part of the tractor rather than the whole thing. Remember to consider interesting value changes in light and shadow.
I will bring extra references in case you need one or I recommend that you bring your own photographs. Finding a particular subject to photograph or sketch for a painting can be challenging and brings some emotional attachment, which translates to better paintings.
