    In the book there is an example of a leg drawing that starts with what is clearly a blind contour, which is what I have usually done, but the main thing is that you do the drawing blind, and don't...

    Sounds just right to me - you're not bound by anatomy or perspective, but you do understand them.

    Perspective is actually a good analogy. Just as lines in an image that converge on a vanishing...

    Nothing at all wrong with your question, gillianseed! The vertical line shows a set of colours in which Photoshop Hue and Saturation remain constant and only Brightness changes, so yes, it does give...

    Sorry jestR, I don't know much about that school, but I believe there is also an annual training program at Animal Logic in Sydney that is very highly regarded, though not easy to get in to.

    Littlebit, bear in mind that any decent art school or centre that has life drawing classes will have a skeleton available (at least, I'd avoid any that don't!). So if you sign up for a term or two of...

    This page has some additional examples of dramatic "glow" created using specific quantitative colour/value relationships (as opposed to contrast per se): ...

    You're very welcome!


    If your're interested, these pages relate to my comments about complementaries:

  9. Art: BlindLynx, those colour pairs - orange/blue,...

    BlindLynx, those colour pairs - orange/blue, red/green and violet/yellow - are the complementaries of simplistic "traditional" colour theory and can be very misleading, as you will see if you study...
  10. Art: These diagrams should help anyone who thinks the...

    These diagrams should help anyone who thinks the glow can be explained purely in terms of contrast. (Sorry, I can't at the moment remember their original source!). The two diagrams are made of...

    "Brightness"(B) in HSB is not value. It is brightness relative to the maximum possible for a given hue (H) and saturation (S). I have a diagram on my site showing the relationship of S and B to value...

    What is colour?

    This is a response I produced for the 2014 Flame Challenge, sponsored by actor Alan Alda, to answer the question "What is color?" in a way suitable for school children. I don't know how it will go...

    This isn't current science. When the trichromatic theory was first proposed it was assumed that there were three receptors with widely spaced sensitivities peaking in red, green and violet (Young) or...

    The physical aspect of subtractive mixing is fairly straightforward: the light reflected by an object is found by multiplying together, wavelength by wavelength, the spectral energy distribution of...

    That's exactly what I'm saying - the intensity (luminance) is the same because the smaller amount of energy is concentrated in a correspondingly smaller visual field.



    Sure, it's the nonlinear...
  16. Sticky: Sorry, I haven't really gone into the BB effect...

    Sorry, I haven't really gone into the BB effect in great detail myself because to be honest it seems a rather arcane issue in the context of practical painting. There's even some debate over whether...

    Mister Janichan,

    The striped sphere in white light looks really good, but your method only seems to be letting you paint setups where the main light and the shadow illumination are the same...

    You really couldn't find a coloured ball?! (And I don't mean a picture of one on Google!). Or couldn't you find direct sunlight? :)

    I think it's really great that you want to understand things, and of course I'm not advocating the ignorant "just paint from life" rubbish that infected ca.org over the last few years (I mean in the...

    Hi guys, my post from yesterday seems to have vanished permanently, but anyway I seem to have managed to get my email notifications working again. It's great to see so much activity here, but by far...

    I guess the answer depends on how deep you are and whether or not the water is at all turbid. However in your documentary I assume they were using artificial light sources for lighting; these would...

    The Dimensions of Colour (huevaluechroma.com) is now all clear on Google. As it turns out there was never any malware on the site itself, the warning was triggered solely by two links back to the...

    Unfortunately the entire site at the University of North Carolina (ibiblio.org) that hosts my website has recently started giving a malware warning in Google Chrome. Hopefully ibiblio.org will fix...
