Course Materials (included with tuition):

What You’ll Learn:

  • How resolving issues with values would fix most problems related to paintings that just miss the mark
  • How values are key to depth illusion and picture making
  • How limiting and assigning key value groups puts you in charge (less is surely more)
  • How applying deliberate accents (value & color) will add spark or life to the painting

Who should take this course:

  • Those just starting their journey painting outdoors on location (plein air painting)
  • Artists frequently puzzled with something that is not quite right with their paintings. In Larry’s experience, 90% of the time it will come down to an issue with values; what he likes to call having a “mid-values crisis!”
