Barbara Coleman - “How You See is What You See- Using Value Studies to Create Great Design”

The noted artist Ray Roberts asks his students, “what are the three most important elements in painting?” The answer: “Design, design, design.” Value is inseparable from design in painting. Learn how to use value studies and notans (two- value studies) to create strong and poetic works of art. New ways of seeing and thinking will transform your work to the next level. This presentation will include examples and a brief demonstration of how I use notans, value plans and shapes to plan and design paintings with greater clarity and inspiration.
