Colour Keys

We will begin to focus on our conceptual keys and digital painting.  Remember there are no wrong ways to approach your paintings.  However some tips can help harness your energy.

Begin your focus with value.  Use basic shapes to start.  An abstract underpainting should be as effective as your finished product.

Be loose and blocky.

Take a step back.  Look at the painting from afar to get the whole effect of your composition and lighting.

Build up your painting with hits of colour and contrast.   Think about your light source and where the light is hitting.  The colour will be it's truest tone in the light and receed into the shadows.
