I've been teaching a workshop on basic oil value painting. As we know, one can use all the beautiful colors on offer, but if the values are off, the painting isn't successful. It is nice to refresh myself as I pass this process on to others. Next, we will move onto introducing color by overlaying our finished value painting with nice rich glazes.
