“Snow isn’t white; white is not even white” - Michael Abraham
By simplifying what you look at, through finding shape, considering the five elemental forms, and using a few key tools to assess the tones and contrast and the variations within tonal ranges, you’ll be able paint images with a dynamic range of tone, and more confidently, convincingly making for a stronger graphic readability to your work whether it be landscape, portrait, still life or abstract.
Together you will explore and understand the variations in light and shade, lightness or darkness of objects and spaces, local tone and colour, and how light and atmosphere play and bounce on forms and textures to create the illusion of three-dimensionality.
Abraham's accessible approach to teaching, through discussion, demonstration and exercise will have you feeling confident about your approach to tonal values in no time. His personable approach speaks much to the appeal of his teaching style, so you'll learn and enjoy yourself thoroughly in the process.
I can now add set designer to my resume!
I spent the fall painting set designs, stage props and a bit of animation for The Children's Theatre of Richmond Association's production of 'The Little Mermaid Jr'.
