Value Study Workshop with Carol Marine & Karin Jurick




6 x 6 Oil on Canvas Board
One of the most valuable exercise that we did at workshop with Karin Jurick & Carol Marine was this exercise where we did three small painting with only Burnt Umber, one we had 40 minutes to complete, one we had 15 minutes and last one was only 5 minutes. Can you pick which is which? I'll post the answer tomorrow.
As I have read many many times in various art books, if you get the value right the color doesn't matter! Well what do you think.

Hi Mary- I thought this was a super exercise, too. It made me want to do a lot more value studies because I just love the monochromatic look and the effect of working so quickly. It's good to see more of your work here!
