My Paintings Have ‘Value’ – From Garden to Canvas

Right from the beginning my paintings have value.  Of course I’m talking values of colour.  If you don’t know how or where to start painting a subject, select a colour and break it down into five values (tones), by adding white.  Look at the subject (squinting helps) and see all the dark values.  Paint those first and so on.  The results are truly amazing.  

You can’t go wrong, by following this method.  

Keep posted for the final results.

Enjoy, Lisa.

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.”
