The following seven courses presuppose a sound understanding of the principles of drawing, value organization and design principles, all of which are offered in the foundation in drawing and design course.
Before frightening the student with the notion that organizing the palette is difficult, let me quickly say we need only three pigment colors and white paint to get started.
The color theory and palette control videos, couple with the text by Frank Morley Fletcher, provide all the information needed to gain considerable control over the subject.
The fear that color control and color theory are complex and difficult are unfounded. We will only need three colored pigments and white paint to create the basic palette.
While watching the video series of lectures, please keep in mind that at no time do we place more that seven colors on the palette, and often we will only use four or five of those.
This video set is also available for purchase on barnstonestudios.com.
My videos are selling all over the world. This series is one of the best and most complete drawing and design courses available anywhere..
Therefore, this set of video lectures, classes and assignments represent a self-standing comprehensive university level art education.
Unlike so many "teach yourself" videos, I do not trivialize my material to avoid threatening the timid. Were the craft of drawing, painting, sculpture and design a simple-minded form of therapy, these subjects would not have attracted the life’s work of so many great minds. Nor, would the world’s museums be so richly filled with masterworks.
