The Value of Values (FULL-wait list)

The Value of Values in Painting, September 28, 9-4 $145

Where: The Button Factory, 855 Islington Street, Studio, 325, Portsmouth, NH

Being able to use a full range of values in a painting creates depth, and variety, and makes it easy for the eye to scan over and through the image. However, many people feel shy or reluctant to use the full range, instead remaining in a mid to higher range, resulting in items that “float” or not anchor to the painting plane. We will work on a full value range during the workshop, with limited color in the morning and a fuller range of color in the afternoon.
