Knowing that a shadow colour is a lower value colour of the same hue as the light areas is one of the most useful things you can know if you want to paint objects that live on the canvas. But if you haven’t got the Munsell book, how do you now if you’ve got the colours right?
Say you’re painting a lemon, what tube paints can you use to paint the shadows? What about an apple?
You can just eyeball it of course, but our unaided perception suffers from all sorts of difficulties that make it very hard to accurately judge a colour, let alone mix it.
If you struggle with knowing what colour to paint shadows, whether you have the Munsell book or not, this webinar will help get you much closer to the right colours for your shadows.
What I’ll be showing you
I’ll be taking objects of a few different local colours (a lemon and an apple will certainly be starring and probably a couple of other things too) and showing you exactly what tube colours I would use to make sure I get the shadow colours right.
I’ll be mixing the colours live, so you can see how I do them, and I’ll also be painting studies of those objects so you can see the process from start to finish.
As usual, there will be a Q&A at the end so you can ask me any questions that might pop up as we go along.
So if you want to take the frustration out of mixing and paint better, more realistic colour – and haven’t got a copy of the Munsell book yet – this webinar is for you. If you have got the Munsell Student book, it will still be useful since it will help you get in the right ball park for your mixes.
The webinar will be on Thursday 23rd of February at 1PM Pacific, 4PM Eastern, 9PM UK time.
Yes, there will be a recording that I’ll email out to people who register, so if you can’t make it, just register and you’ll get a link to the replay.
