WEEK 1 | VALUES AND SHAPES

This lesson focuses on ways to advance your ability to observe the critical relationships of both shapes and values as well as learning to simplify the elements of nature into a range our paints are capable of describing. This is essential to achieving a convincing illusion of light and depth.
 

WEEK 2 | MAKING THE MOST OF CHROMA

In this weeks lesson we will continue exploring the power and limitations of our colors. Knowing when you have hit a wall in terms of what your palette is capable of will allow you to use your time and energy in a more efficient and effective way.
 

WEEK 3 | USING COLOR TO CREATE FORM

Our inability to reproduce everything we see in nature can lead to some creative ways to compensate for what our paints cannot do. This lesson will explain principles for using color changes in place of value changes which is referred to as "conservation of values".
 

WEEK 4 | PUTTING THE PUZZLE TOGETHER

Continuing into week 4 we will explore how the previous lessons in hue, value and chroma play a role in composition, as well as the elements of edges, detail and contrast. Our goal will be to establish a strong center of interest, and then add supporting areas to create a compelling harmonious work of art.

This course has 9 hours of high definition instructional videos that are designed for artists at every level and in every medium.
