Value: Mood, Palette, and Light
Lecture no. 10 from the course: The Complete Painter: Lessons from the Masters
Taught by Professor David Brody | 35 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses
Learn how value affects the mood of a painting—with a greater range of values bringing higher energy and a smaller range bringing a softer, calmer mood. Explore how value also can be used to create pattern, a focal hierarchy, and the illusion of space and three-dimensional volume. You’ll also examine the way light can be used to give a flat effect or to produce greater drama with a chiaroscuro.
