Using Colorful Darks to Create Powerful Paintings

04/04/2016 - 04/06/2016

Holiday Inn, Fargo, ND

Using Colorful Darks to Create Powerful Paintings
With Ellen Jean Diederich
April 4-8 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. at the Fargo Holiday Inn.
Contact Ellen for additional information & registration form ellen@givinity.com or 701-235-4241

Value contrast is one of the most effective ways to make your paintings stand out across the room. The trouble is students and even professional artists often harbor fear when placing a strong dark into a painting. Often times a strong dark can also shake your whole color palette into ugliness giving your fears validity. Yet usually if you go to a juried exhibition, the paintings with good value contrast are the award winners. This workshop focuses on coordinating color dominance and effective value contrast to increase your success.
