Artists Round Table Materials Notes

Artists Round Table Materials Notes

In lieu of a handout, here are some notes for the demo for June 1

Colors:

Are what strikes most viewers about my work. I worked many years to see and understand values.
Only with accurate values can one get away with expressive saturated colors

Tools are gray scales  like this one http://www.cheapjoes.com/cheap-joe-s-value-sketch-and-composition-finder.html
