MODULE 1 | VALUES AND PLANES
A painting always starts with simplified planes and values and then becomes more complicated. The planes show the depth and form of a landscape and are the building blocks before color is applied. We will begin the foundation with value drawings and paintings.
MODULE 2 | BLOCK IN COLOR AND BROKEN COLOR
In this lesson we will study the thought process of mixing color with the purpose of showing light and form without detail, then how to use broken color to suggest detail and depth. I will also be demonstrating the importance of color temperature and brushwork.
MODULE 3 | ATMOSPHERIC PERSPECTIVE
Atmospheric perspective is what gives the landscape depth and distance. Using value changes and color temperature we can give the illusion of objects receding and coming forward. Edges are another factor in showing depth, and I will demonstrate how to use a variety of hard and soft edges to achieve this in your painting.
MODULE 4 | CENTER OF INTEREST
This lesson will focus on an impressionistic approach to painting. We will define our focal point or center of interest, and simplify the rest of the painting around it. We will be using dynamic brushwork to show form and movement throughout the painting. This approach forces you to think about what is important, and then simplify the values and colors to make a bold statement.
