Technical Insights from “Not Far from Home” #20 « daniel gerhartz April 2, 2012 Warm, Cool, Warm… One of the key elements that I have taken away from years of painting from life is the heightened awareness of the warm /cool interplay on the subject as the form turns. I know I have mentioned this on previous posts, but its importance bears mentioning again. In this image and the details to follow, you will see how the shifting of temperature accentuates the volume and three dimensionality of image while holding the values in a simple mass. In these details, you can see the transitions from warm to cool inter-playing throughout the forms, but most specifically where noted with letters W (warm) C(cool). This study of warm and cool as it relates to light and form is discussed and demonstrated in great detail in our re-released Video “Her Mother’s Locket”. To purchase “Her Mother’s Locket” instruction, please click painting. Click image to see preview trailer…Thanks Enjoy! Like this: Like Loading...
