Yesterday I starting preparing for the 6 week painting class
I will be teaching at the South Shore Art Center next month.
I'm working on some new exercises to try out and thought I would try Carol Marine's
I set up real simple still life.
Then did a value study in burnt umber.
Then painted "made up" colors, but kept them in the same value.
This is a great lesson!
It reinforces my favorite quote:
"Value does all the work,
Color gets all the credit."
Someone wrote to me and suggested that that applies to "life" as well.
Well, yes. It does.
