Great article from Dan Johnson. The five rules he discusses: Always paint from dark to light. Never use black paint. Warm light, cool shadows (and vice versa) The rule of thirds Warm colours advance, cool colours recede
This approach makes sense, especially when you look at the example paintings. But I think it’s going to take me a while to make the shift in my head.
Note: Paul encourages painters to think in terms of hue (one of the three Munsell colour properties) rather than temperature for accuracy.
It’s taking me longer and longer to post these because the exercises I’m working on between classes are taking longer. Last Wednesday, we finally got to work with paint. This is what I’d been waiting for.
