Painting Tips On Establishing Accurate Values

Advertisement Do's and Don'ts For establishing Accurate Values

1. When painting, never judge a value independently but always in relationship to at least two other values. for study purposes only, however, it's perfectly legitimate to isolate a value and seek to determine its individual place on the tonal scale.

2. Always aim for a strong, simple tonal effect rather than for a complex, fragmented one, wich usually serves only to weaken a painting.

3. Be selective, simplify, don't attemp to render all the tones you see, since this is beyond human capacity.

4. Pay special attention to your halftones, they are subtle, delicate creature, and given render loving care and attention they will respons by lending beauty, character and sensitivity to your painting.

5. In painting highligths, pain just what you see, resist the temptation to render them lighter than they are just because they are hightlights.

6. Keep a tight rein on your reflected lights lest they distort the shadow by their overaggressive, deadly attraction. nothing can kill a shadow faster than a gorgeously over stated reflected light.

While value is, for artistic purposes, separated into nine degrees of tonality, it is also-for the same reason-divided into six different kinds. They are:

Ten Painting tips on reflection


Ten Painting tips on Reflection

1 - Any given point on an object must reflect directly below itself.

2 - An object tilting toward you will foreshorten and will seem shorter than its reflection.

3 - When an object tilts away from you, its reflection becomes shorter than the object itself.

4 - The reflection of the object appears the way you would see it if your eyes were on the surface of the water, where the reflection is located.

5 - The tonal value of a reflection is controlled by the deepest value of the waters local color.

6 - The color of a reflection is influenced by the local color of the water.

7 - The angle of incidence and the angle of reflection are always the same and they are inseperable.

8 - Reflections are not in the water but on its surface.

9 - If a gentle wind blow from the side making many tiny waves, you may see breeze paterns on the water's surface.

10 - When a very light subject against a very dark background reflects in gently moving water, its reflection may appear much longer than the length of the object itself.

Painting Tip of Composition and Design


Composition and Design

Painting is an visual art, composing a painting means that the artist must use visual means to express his or her ideas and to communicate emotion. All paintings are the result of composed graphic elements, They may be good, bad or indifferent but how they communicate depends on the artist. Stimulating organization makes a painting pleasing to the eye. 
However, a balanced composition doesn't mean computer - like perfection, but rather a comfortable harmony between all elements for the benefit of the whole unit.
Painting that are only technically perfect seem stiff  and sterile because they lack of emotional stimulation. People do not respond to art with skilled reason, but with immediate and honest emotions.
An artist needs to know how to deliver graphic symbols that can communicate emotional qualities. It's helpful to understand these symbols and the part they play in compositional reasoning when we plan our paintings.
Carefully planned elements are every bit as good as accidently derived ones. The talent involved in using happy accidents lies in the decision to keep them or reject them.

Painting Tips


1. Look at your painting upside down to see shapes, not subjects.
2. Look at your painting in a mirror to see the work with a fresh eye.
3. Examine your painting in a black mirror (a pane of glass painted black on one side) . The reflection will Knock down the color and help you see values.
4. Squint. It softens the scene so you see large, important shapes with less detail.
5. If you're having a hard time seeing a color or value in a scene, look next to that color, not right at it.
6. Look at your painting from a distance, or use a reducing glass, to see the large, important masses.
7. In the studio, try not to get too comfortable or too close to the canvas, which limits your brushstrokes. Stand up while painting. It allows more freedom of arm movement.

8. use a viewfinder when searching for a composition (a mat board with a rectangular opening works fine) to block out confusing, unwanted areas.
