Demo for the Midway Art Association
I was invited to do a demo/lecture last night at the Midway Art Association's monthly gathering. I had such a great time, such great people! I am always quite nervous in the beginning and ramble much, but it usually doesn't take much time for my non-sense makes sense. In the spirit of "ridding oneself of the tyranny of things as they appear", I explained my series process of working in value and contrast keys. We all picked a demo of a high-key, low contrast piece with color temperature shifts as the contrast and development of spacial relationships. Here is the before and after pics, although I am sure it's not quite finished. I would like to do a little glazing and defining after it dries and that might take a few days. As promised, here it is posted on the blog. Please feel free to add suggestions or make comments.
