What you will learn
In this series, instructor Bill Perkins brings you his crash course on color theory and practice. This six part series is designed to accelerate your learning curve, allowing you to gain confidence in your paintings and an overall understanding of how color works in various situations. Each lesson will focus on a different aspect of color, and will center around images of a model in different color and lighting set-ups designed by Bill himself. This first lesson in the series will focus on value, and how to break down various values within your paintings. Bill will begin with a brief lecture on how to identify contrast within high and low key lighting set-ups, and then it's time to get to work: You will be shown a series of 4 images throughout the lesson featuring a model in different lighting situations, and you will have 30 minutes to complete a painting of each. Following each painting, you will see how Bill approaches the the same assignment, allowing you to compare your work with his. We recommend you give each painting multiple attempts, but restrict yourself each time to no more than 30 minutes per painting.
