Value Plus Portrait Drawing | Lyn Diefenbach

Value Plus Portrait Drawing | Lyn Diefenbach

Stunning portraits can be created by using a very limited palette of 3 or 4 values.

Value deals with the lightness or darkness of a colour. Since we see objects and understand objects because of how dark or light they are, value is incredibly important - it is the key to the illusion of light.

What will I learn?

In this workshop, we will be concentrating on the importance of values to create form and will use a very limited palette of Pastel pencils and white charcoal to achieve our goals.

Who is this course suitable for?

This workshop is suitable for anyone who wants to understand the importance of value and its role in all art mediums. This will be a practical, hands-on workshop, led by Australia's foremost Master Pastellist who is also an exceptional oil painter.
