Value Studies

On a recent watercolour weekend course, Judy and Carolyn focused on values.  It doesn’t matter what colour you paint a subject so much as it matters that you get the values right.  Using red filters, we can see any image as a monochrome value study.  Here’s the reverse: a colour painting turned black and white to check the values.

We also talked about colour, particularly using complimentary colours.  A lot of people wondered about the vermillion, but it works next to the blues!
