Li, all your photos are terrific! :clap: Thank you.
Here are quick watercolor ACEOs of the Handmade Canoes, Barnier Cave and Bahamian Woman. Used a a credit card as a template, did the value sketch first and then the color sketch. About 5 to10 minutes for value ACEO and 20 minutes for color ACEO on each ref.
I might just try doing a little painting of one of them later in the week.

Love the value studies. That us a really good habit to get into and keep up. I don't do them nearly enough. You got a lot of information and composition into the canoes, that's great. Very nice work on the woman and the cave has good light and atmosphere. Thanks for joing in Athena!

Great job. I can't decide which I like the best, I am torn between the canoes and the woman. Excellent job!

Athena, thank you for posting the value sketches. I read an older wc book of mine and the author went into length at value sketches but it was so hard and a bit confusing for a beginner. You have simplified it for me.

Lovely quick work.
