October – The Color of Light

Walta brought great props for us to paint using the color of light.

In this activity, each person selected item to create an individual still life.  Then we painted using only light, medium or dark values using white, gray and black.  In the next phase we replaced light with red, dark with blue, and medium with red.  In the final phase, we added local color over the value painting.

A fun and challenging workshop!

September – 4 FOR 25

Holly challenged us to paint timed value studies.  First using our non-dominant hand – next with our brush attached to a long piece of mat board.
