For Oct 6, paint the following scene, and do your best to show that light is coming from the right hand side. Notice that certain balloon segments have a darker version of the same color on the left (in shadow) and a lighter version on the right (in the light) as depicted by the arrows. Also, look carefully and note the shading on the canyon walls, bushes etc. -Don’t forget to identify your work in some fashion with your name.
