Learn the inner workings of Light and Color in digital painting medium.


To understand the relationship of Light and Color, we must take a in-depth look at the effects of lighting. We will start by studying the theory of color and light, then put it into practice by painting directly from life. In this class we will gain a new level of proficiency by in-class guided studies. We shall explore still-life, plein-air, and color study from various sources to build up a practical and precise understanding of how to pick the right colors to add life to your painting.
