Painting Values and Color

Posted on

In my latest art instruction video, I clearly demonstrate how to create powerful, compelling paintings. The comprehensive demonstration will provide clarity on how to create stronger and emotionally impactful paintings — no matter the medium, scene, or subject! In this enlightening course, I guide you through the process of creating a monochromatic value underpainting using acrylics (though you can use oil if you prefer). I’ll also show you how to establish the mood through value alone, and then how to enhance the mood even further using color.

I believe it’s an important video. It takes complex painting concepts and makes them clear and understandable, so that you can easily apply them to your own work.

Many of you dear people who follow my work have already purchased the video…whether streamed or a physical copy; if you have, would you please do me a big favor?
