A ‘Value’able Lesson

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This class was all about ‘painting what you see’, by understanding values. Most people would paint this boot blue, but by studying every inch of the subject you realize that there are many ‘values’ of blue.  Once you understand that, simply paint what you see.  The results are truly amazing.  Gail, a first time painter, remarked how she would see everything differently  now.  As for Jeannie, after just a few classes, has a good understanding and laid down her values quickly. 

Both ladies left very pleased with their accomplishment.  Keep tuned for their next masterpieces!

Now check out what my younger students achieved!  I’m very proud of these little artists.  Learning about ‘values’ is not always easy, but in just 90 minutes each student had a clearer understanding of how to recognize the different tones within an object.  As for Saydee, well  lack of sleep proved to cause a greater challenge.  However, her ‘Blue Storm’ looks pretty good too!  Great job ladies.  Until next time…


About Lisa's Palette

"My paintings are often admired for their realistic qualities through the use of light, shadow and colour. Capturing the beauty within the rustic landscapes of my entitled series, 'Farms of Simcoe County,' has become my passion. Keeping my camera close at hand allows me to capture the images as I come across them, while I use my artistic gifts to seek out particular points of interests in these images. Painting on location brings a connection to the subject, through not only sight, but sound and smell as well. My goal is to produce paintings that give the viewer a sense of calmness and relaxation.”
