A Complete Foundation to Drawing & Colour. This is an absolutely imperative series and film for any artist who wishes to paint "figuratively". I have produced many clear graphics to demonstrate perspective, measuring, scale and proportion. I show you many examples of paintings by myself and other artists to demonstrate methods, tone, line, texture and form. The use and chemistry of colour is clearly dealt with explaining intensity, tone, colour circle, broken colour, warms and cools, colour perspective "Aerial" and linear perspective. I show you simple ways to draw a portrait, use lighting and form, figures and much more. I have even had many experienced artists who have praised this film having found something new!
