Session three will be here on:
Tuesday 30th March
6PM UK time (10AM Pacific, 1PM Eastern)
What we’ll be doing
In order to really cement the relationship between colour and value, I’d like to do two block-in studies in this session.
They will both be fairly simple, without detail. What we’ll be looking for is accurate values and a strong start.
Both studies will be of the same subject (above), the first will be value only and the second will be colour – trying to ensure that the colours we mix are the same values as we used for the value study.
This is a hugely important part of painting flowers well, so I want to devote one entire session to it.
What you’ll need
