Watercolor Studio Class Information

Monday, February 26, 2018

This class will focus on the role of value in creating visual interest. In most compositions it is the introduction of contrast – visual oppositions – that create interest, tension and dynamism.  Often, it is necessary to create contrasts, particularly value contrasts, that don’t exist in the actual scene or subject. We’ll work on that this week.

Color Theory from “Sketching & Rendering In Color” by Arthur Guptill, Reinhold & Sons, 1935

This is a section of a classic reference book for architectural illustrators. It is by Arthur Guptill, an architect, illustrator and artist. By happy chance while trying to find out if the book was in the public domain (it is), I stumbled on the Hathi Trust Digital Library. It has thousands of public domain books digitized, including “Sketching & Rendering In Color“.  If you happen to be associated with one of the participating member institutions, your access will allow you to download pdf versions of the books.
