TURNING FORM WITH COLOR
In this exercise, we practice, in a very simplified form, turning the form with color. This enables you to conserve values, which can be very useful in creating a unified design. We talked about coming up the color wheel as the form turns into the light.
As a plein air painter, I spend many contented hours sitting in some inspiring spot with the sights and sounds of the outdoors, capturing my impressions of light and color. Back in the studio, these works expand, recreating a particular place in a special moment.
