Last Tuesday was the last 3 hours of the 6-Hour pose at Paulo Ruvalcabo’s alla prima class at the School of Light and Color.
Here’s the previous post on the first 6 hour – https://marleneleeart.com/2015/04/29/6-hour-pose/.
What I took from here is something I had heard before but now is sinking it – The sphere shape in rendering the values from shadows to light. Areas to pay close attention to is around the forehead, along the cheekbones, around the jaw line, the transition on the nose planes from side to top and then to the other side, the roundness of the eyelids and the roundness of the lips.
Another point that I have finally become more aware of is that different colors of the same values can be blended in. I’m a bit still uncertain how to deal with this new knowledge but I still need to think in values even though colors are introduced.
