I have to say I was so impressed with one of my students Debbie Abshear at my Calistoga workshop this month. Debbie does a lot of Plein Air Painting and is always doing value sketches where ever she goes, either in her note book or as you can see here, in an accordion sketch book which she make herself. I loved what she was doing and want to share her talent with you, basically she does quick studies to help her find her values then places the local color along side with a few notes. Love the affect and her work.

Debbie can make these sketch books any size that she likes
This was a beautiful painting that she did
