Watercolor: See & Paint Tonal Values
Lifelong Learning

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 and it is the sole focus of this class. You will practice how to determine the values -- how light or dark any given point is -- then paint them in black and white, eventually 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 will also learn to use your values to compose your painting. It is recommended that students have previous drawing skills for this class.
