Sketchbook Sunday: A Lesson in Values

Hi friends! I get the opportunity to view and critique student work every day and the most common issue I see is weak values. Today I am going to give you some tips to help assign values for depth, volume and clarity. I hope you find it useful in whatever medium you paint in!

I will have a 2 hour narrated tutorial of this painting in Critique Club in a couple of days but for a rundown of the concepts you can watch the time lapse below.

I hope you had a good weekend! My oil painting challenge is going well but I am going to need to buckle down if I am going to get my 20 done by the end of the month. I think this painting is #7 or #8. I am enjoying it! Til next time happy painting!

    It pains me to say this but I need you to take me out of critique club. I have come to the difficult decision that if I haven’t done anything with it by now then I’m not going to and so I’m trimming a lot of my art interests for the time being. Circumstances in my life have changed recently making my free time pretty scarce for the foreseeable future. I must simplify in order to not be so stressed out. I wish everyone well and I highly recommend critique club for anyone with a passion and gift for art. Bless you always!
