Let me refresh your memory; I am reading Color by Betty Edwards doing the individual lessons. I chose a fabric, divided my 10x10" board into six sections. Section #1 I glued the original fabric to the board. ( It was supposed to represent all of the major colors in the fabric).
The design in the fabric is way too detailed and it is driving me a bit crazy trying to match up the hue and color when I am directed to paint. It is transparent so it is next to impossible to determine value changes. Not fun!
|STEP 2 & 3|
Now I am starting to take liberties with the colors within the design; I just want to finish this lesson. Step 5 added the compliment of the original color to point out how a neutral is important to a final painting.
Step 6 goes back to duplicating the original color and values.
In all honesty I did not do justice to this lesson. I truly see the value in this exercise and I will repeat the lesson with a simple design.
Much to be learned.
