Understanding the light striking your motif and how it defines form is the foundation of representing three-dimensions when painting on a two-dimensional surface. This is the sole focus of this class. You'll learn how to determine values--how light or dark any plane or section of your subject is. Then you'll practice painting them in black and white, progressing to painting them in color. The ability to see your values is the key to creating the illusion of form, the effect of atmospheric perspective, and the quality of light on your subject. You'll also learn to use your values to compose your painting. It is recommended that students have previous drawing skills for this class.
