With a focus on color and light, Sally demonstrates how to “key” a painting and create light using value comparison for composition and rendering form. Concepts of color relativity, harmonizing color masses, the effects of light on color, and optical mixing of layered color are explored. Sally poses questions you can use as tools to showcase beautiful color and light to create a compelling motif. Painting from clothed models and still life, each student receives individual attention and critiques. Demonstrations, lectures and slide shows are designed to help you achieve light-filled paintings with vibrant color.
