Course Description

 

MODULE 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.

MODULE 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.

MODULE 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".

MODULE 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.

Although I have participated in Laura Robb’s workshops a number of times, this online course has been instrumental in helping me get past a plateau in my painting skills. The opportunity to receive instruction in my own studio has been a big advantage in resolving lighting issues and the weekly discipline has helped me to establish better working habits. Best of all, the feedback has resulted in major improvements in my work.
Thank you so much!
