About This Class


In this class I break down what value is and why it's so important to understand when painting. Value is the lightness or darkness of a color. Understanding value helps you paint objects 3 dimensionally and illustrate space in a composition.

This is the first time I tried Acrylics. This class is very suitable for beginners because you can see how Linda uses tools, mixes colors and uses medium. After I finish the lesson, I notice many things I did not pay attention to before. Thanks a lot!
