Light and Color Sketch Tour with Marco Bucci

Check out the extended reaction video!

CHALLENGE: Get ready to play with light and color like never before! In this challenge, we’re teaming up with Marco Bucci to encourage you to present a strong and convincing sense of light and color, while maintaining a loose finish. You may submit a thumbnail-size color rough, or a larger canvas - they will be evaluated equally. Marco will be judging based on the believability of the light source, the colors the light causes to occur in the scene, and how well you’re able to preserve the sense of looseness, or sketchiness in the process. You may keep the light and color on the realistic/natural side, or caricature it for effect. You may work from life, from photo reference, or from imagination.
