I'm still waiting on those gallery demo photos. When I receive 'em, I'll post 'em.
I'll be demonstrating and running the Head Painting Workshop again at Salt Lake Community College for our Concurrent Enrollment Program's High School Workshops this Friday. He's the same model we had last year for the painting, Rogue
, posted previously. "The Captain" is a terrific model and what a great costume! The kids really enjoy him. Fantastic how well these students do in a session from life.
We'll concentrate on value utilizing a palette of only titanium white, burnt sienna and burnt umber.
"Give me a V...give me an A give me an...L give me a...U give me an...E! What does it spell? VALUE!"
We'll pay homage to Mr. Howard Pyle with emphasis on value and the pirate costume.
, Father of American Illustration and Founder of the Brandywine School, taught the principles, and I paraphrase:
-With every change in plane direction, comes a change in value.
-The darkest light (middle/dark halftones) on the light side of an object cannot be as dark as the lightest light (reflected light) on the dark side. Conversely, the lightest dark (reflected light) on the dark side of an object, cannot be as light as the darkest light (middle/dark halftones) on the light side.
