Line Shape Form Space Value Color COLOR the New Element of Art for this week by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Line Shape Form Space Value Color 

"Colouring does not depend on where the colours are put, but on where the lights and darks are put, and all depends on form and outline, 
on where that is put. " (William Blake)

The Pumpkins began to bloom in the studio and it is now time for color.  Working in Acrylic, which is not the medium of choice for me for still life painting, I plunged ahead with student Lisa eagerly jumping into the challenge.

Both of the above are my pieces.

Remember last week, we began with just values using black and white. Now it is time to begin applying color.  I found it easier with the acrylics to do it layers letting some bleed through from below and you can watch as some change through the process.

This is Lisa at work and her progress with her pumpkins. She will be back tonight for more and we will be gearing up for TEXTURE! ( I really see a lot of texture in her current work.)

Here are my pumpkins as they are sitting right now. Some are finished, some are not. Some I am tempted to jump in with oils!

Hummm... what to do tonight with texture. Lisa and Sheryl are you ready?

Thank you again Rebecca Zook for your inspiration with values into paintings.

As surely as I valued your life today, so may the Lord value my life and deliver me from all trouble.”  1 Samuel 26:24
