Acrylic Painting: Exploring Color

Acrylic Painting: Exploring Color

Temperature and value: The cold hard facts: Is it warm or cool? How warm? How cool? Dark or light? Is there value to dark? How fast does light travel? Where is mid-tone? What about balance; 50/50? How do these components create space? Why compose and how?

We will explore the concept of temperature while we construct a painting of a landscape. We’ll discuss subject matter, composition, layout, and negative space.  How can we create the effect of three dimensions on a two dimensional surface? We’ll use color to create depth of field and atmosphere. Bring your questions, concerns and roadblocks. We’ll find the answers.
