Every artist knows the importance of color, but it is often difficult to mix just the right one. It is frustrating to have to scrape off paint or paint over a color multiple times.
This DVD has a wealth of information and answers to that challenge. On these two discs, totaling 2½ hours, you will join in Diane’s classes, and in her studio, on an in-depth journey into everything about color.
- There are three demonstration paintings, each of a still life filled with objects of one primary color - red, blue, and yellow.
- In the classroom she teaches you how to take a primary color and change the temperature from very warm to very cool, and the paints to use to make that happen.
- In one segment an original painting by Sergei Bongart, Master Russian Impressionist, is examined and his use of colors and color temperature is discussed at length.
- The second disc was filmed in Diane’s studio where a complex, colorful and large still life is set up. Diane walks the viewer through the value study, the initial drawing, and then to the three steps to complete a large painting with emphasis on color temperature, values, brush and paint application techniques, and much more.
