    In this video series, instructor Bill Perkins breaks down the complex topic of Color Theory in a clear and easy to understand way. In this first lesson Bill Perkins is focused on values and he will introduce the importance of establishing a strong Matrix and the mood by adjusting your Major and Minor Keys. He will also demonstrate the importance and differences between designing via Chiaroscuro and Notan and show you how you can utilize these schemes in your drawings and paintings.

    Hi, I don’t know if this happens only to me, but there is no transcript in this course.

    These are great lessons, thanks!

    A minor note: please pronounce chiaroscuro as /kɪˌɑːɹəˈskʊəɹəʊ/ as in “key”, not “church” 🙂

    These were shot almost 8 years ago before we have the new format where references are available. Hopefully we will get a chance to go back into this content and retroactively add images.

    Thanks for updating this video and adding the reference images. I sure would like to see Perkins revisit this and narrate more instruction and more detailed thoughts about what he is doing. Maybe in a more pedantic way that would help me in taking notes.

    Hi,

    I am wondering what is difference between Level 1 and Level 2? The titles of the videos seem similar. Is Level 2 an updated version? Should I start there?

     

    Thanks!

    The sections have a different format. We recommend you do them all in order.

    The analysis and comparison between the Botticelli and Rembrandt paintings was informative! I really enjoyed it.

    A question I keep asking myself is how does one effectively identify the values of a painting without getting influenced by the neighboring values or hues?
    Are there any tips or tricks for that?

    Hi Physence, while I am not a painter, I have seen painters hold up their paint brush, loaded with the mixed color, in front of the color they are trying to match in the same fashion that you would hold up your paint brush to get a measurement.

    I hope this helps 🙂

    Hello! Thank you for the lesson. It would have been very helpful to see reference photos! It is hard to understand what is going without it.

    Hi Sebastian Cosenza saad,
    As Joshua mentions above this is an older course but we were able to include some of the reference images that are now available under the reference tab.
