Class Description:

By understanding light and shadow families, and how correct values can be established for each family, colour becomes easy to mix for a beautifully balanced painting.  It’s seldom the colours that do not work in a painting but rather the values.  This class offers and teaches several useful techniques used by many of the well-known and successful painters of landscape and other genre.
