The June workshop will be here on Wednesday June 17th, 6PM Uk time (10AM Pacific, 1PM Eastern).
The workshop this month will follow on from last month’s, painting different versions of the same subject with different approaches to value balance. The difference this month is that the reference photo is of real world objects.
Here’s the photo (with a value scale included for reference):
And here it is with a grid for drawing out:
The materials list is simple again for this month, a pre-mixed value scale and something to paint on :). I’ll be painting two studies, both on 5 x 7 inch panels.
For the value scale, if you don’t have a Munsell scale don’t worry. Take white as your lightest value and ivory black as your darkest.
Mix a value you think is half way between them. Then mix two more values, one half way between the white and the middle value, and one half way between the black and the middle value.
Now you have a 5-step value scale. If any of the steps seem uneven to you, adjust them until you’re happy.
You can also mix a value betwen each of those, giving you a 9 step scale, but 5 steps will probably be enough. You can mix between as we go.
It would probably be a good idea to have the studies drawn out before starting, since we’ll be rattling along once we start 🙂
As always, the session will be recorded and I’ll be putting an edited version in the course library afterwards so you can go over it as many times as you like.
