Evening “Light and Color” Session
Grand Central Academy of Art, Monday, July 14, 2014.
During each of my workshops I offer a lecture/discussion centered on color – establishing a common framework for all the participants to make use of during the remainder of the workshop.
For my upcoming 6 day still life workshop at the Grand Central Academy of Art I will be giving this lecture/discussion on the first evening of the workshop. And, for the first time ever, this session will be open to individuals beyond the workshop’s participants! Through a combination of images, props and often enthusiastic hand gestures I will be sharing information on:
-Organizing colors in a color-space model.
-Understanding fundamentals of how light works and affects our perceptions of an object’s local color and its shading.
-Principles behind color mixing.
-How I go about designing a palette for a painting or a particular subject.
This approximately three-hour session will be packed with as much information as I can squeeze in — with time available for questions from the group.
If you can attend, I can’t wait to share with you the most critical ideas related to color that help me in each of my own paintings so that hopefully you can feel more confident in your own color decisions!
