Captivate, compel and inspire your viewer with color! Award-winning artist Joseph Dolderer guides you through three variations of the block study as you learn to use color to express form and value. Discover how to analyze and paint color and plane changes, and depict transitions using warm and cool hues. Paint a simplified still life and use color, highlights and value shifts to create a fully dimensional, sculptural quality. With each exercise, you’ll hone a powerful system for mapping out compositions as masses of color and light. Once mastered, this skill will help you simplify much more complex subject matters. Still lifes, landscapes and portraits will come together faster, easier and more radiant than ever before!
