About This Class

In this class you will learn the basics of tone and how it impacts your artwork. To help illustrate what tone is I create a side-by-side demonstration that includes a 'bad' and 'good' version.

In the 'bad' version I use tone poorly which results in a flat painting. In the 'good' version I use tone to establish the feeling of depth which results in a more dynamic painting.

Who is this class for?

This is an excellent class for beginners, or aspiring artists that understand the value of developing good painting fundamentals.
