Upside Down in Lamesa

Yes...you read correctly....today in Lamesa drawings were critiqued then turned upside down for the first washes of color....after the paintings were dry...upside down again to add shadows and adjust the values.  Final darks and calligraphy marks finished the paintings....great job ladies.  This exercise helps to loosen a painting with lost and found edges with little regard for the drawing....below are some of the finished works...
