Artist at Work: Playing with Space

Lynda.com - Tue, 02/11/2014 - 19:00
Authored By: Mary Jane Begin

Released On: 2/12/2014

If you can convince a viewer that there is depth in a flat image, you can increase the emotional resonance and believability of your artwork. In this course, professional illustrator Mary Jane Begin explores how color and contrast affect the illusion of space. Mary Jane shows how to choose a focal point for your image, use temperature to define your foreground and background objects, employ contrasting colors to create depth, and work with edges to create contrast. As with all Artist at Work courses, the techniques shown here can be applied to both traditional and digital media.

Mary Jane uses the following materials in this course: 150-pound hot-press watercolor paper, tube watercolors, and pastel. Additional materials may include acrylic color for layering, a stiff-bristle oil painting brush and a sponge to remove color, and a variety of round-tip sable or synthetic-blend watercolor brushes.
