Project Description

The overall project for the class will be to create simplistic 'value' pictures or sketches. I will demonstrate how to start with basic 3 value black/white pictures and how to organize those values. I'll then do the same with a limited color palette(completely optional). The project is more about familiarizing yourself with how to move oil paint on the surface, while at the same time creating basic pictures using still-lives. The project is meant to be a simple exercise to teach you about value control in a picture without having to render any details.
