Although I’m still struggling with this, I found this article from Seattle Artist League on blocking in helpful. Some good example images.
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.
I’ve got a bad cold and am feeling really lousy today, but I went to a local stationery store about bought a few small canvas boards (8x10s) and this colour wheel. I’m really pleased I got it. It covers all the basics of colour theory, including giving explanations of terms such as hue, value, intensity (saturation/chroma), tint, tone, and shade. I think it’ll come in really handy when I’m mixing colours and considering colour schemes for my paintings—certainly more handy than my home-made job. 🙂
A really helpful guide to the difference between these colour-theory terms.
