How to See in Value One of the most important concepts to know and understand as a visual artist is that pictures, scenes and still images are arrangements of value; light, dark and gray shapes. It’s these light, dark and gray shapes that the human mind assembles as a cohesive picture. Being able to see the world as shapes of value, especially colored shapes and objects, is a master skill to cultivate as a visual artist. It’s important to the artist because in order to compose and arrange shapes in our pictures, we must first see and understand their inherent grayscale value. The most basic and abstract pattern of dark and light shapes (A) is the first ‘read’ the mind makes. This happens on a visceral, almost subconscious level. How do we train our eyes to see the world in value? To see these strategies in action, watch the video below or continue reading for the in-depth breakdown. Step 1: Ignore color information One way to see color as value is to simply ignore the color. Step 2: Look for Edges and Borders

3) The Block-In, Part One « Georgetown Atelier Abrieviated steps of this tutorial (click to enlarge) To view a high resolution file of the finished drawing click Here. I like to approach any drawing or painting project in these simple terms: 1) Envision what you want to express and what is most critical to communicate. 2) Work towards that vision, and take advantage of any unexpected discoveries that further it. 3) Solve the problems that are compromising your vision. In constructing a figure drawing, depending on the pose I will use different variations of a technique commonly referred to as a ‘Block-In’. Learning to work from the ‘Broad to the Specific’ is a reoccurring theme and educational cornerstone of the curriculum I teach. The design structure of the block-in (left) translates into the rendered version (right) Take notice of how the block-in on the left is a simplified or ‘distilled’ version of the further developed image on the right.

Photoshop CS5 Mixer Brush Tips and Tricks (This is the first of two articles on the Mixer Brush that I've written. The second can be found here.) Having wrestled with Photoshop's new Mixer Brush in CS5 for the past few months, I've come to the conclusion that the new tool is indeed a great addition, however with many caveats. Here are the biggest hurdles I've come across while working with the new Mixer Brush, and how I've overcome them for the time being. 1.) This one stumped me for a long time. As can be seen in the pic below, the Mixer Brush never manages to build up to the actual color you have selected when painting in 8-bits/channel, no matter how many strokes you lay down. When painting in 16-bits/channel, the Mixer Brush works just fine. So the solution is easy - paint in 16-bits/channel! The only problem with this solution is that not all filters are available when working with 16-bit images, so expect to change the mode occasionally if you like using filters. 2.) 3.) 4.) 5.) 6.) 7.) 8.) 9.) Conclusion: Thanks for reading!

Coolorus - ColorPicker Why Beauty Matters | RCL Video Art Why Beauty Matters <p>JavaScript required to play <a hreflang="en" type="video/mp4" href=" Why Beauty Matters</a>.</p> Philosopher Roger Scruton presents a provocative essay on the importance of beauty in the arts and in our lives. In the 20th century, Scruton argues, art, architecture and music turned their backs on beauty, making a cult of ugliness and leading us into a spiritual desert. Using the thoughts of philosophers from Plato to Kant, and by talking to artists Michael Craig-Martin and Alexander Stoddart, Scruton analyses where art went wrong and presents his own impassioned case for restoring beauty to its traditional position at the center of our civilization.
