Value Study:Purifying Mask

More grappling with values. I am following an exercise from Catherine Kehoe's student painting collection posted on her teaching website, Although the directions were not stated, I could see one group of portraits done with very close dark values and one group done with lighter values. I went back through my photos to find something dark, and it would have been better without all the white, but as it was I found it challenging. The lower portrait is done by a student, I think Jamie Baldwin is the correct name. Those student paintings are wonderful.


  1. Hi - I love Catherine Kehoe's work too, and this is my first time visiting your site. I like your work, I'm really interested in what you're doing - I'll be bookmarking you! - Sarah

  2. Check out Fine Art Work Center in Provincetown,Ma for a workshop Catherine is doing this summer, another one is in Vt through Massart. I love what you have been doing lately with values and copying masterworks.
