In this FREE online event, join artist Sterling Edwards as he shares his four-step process for achieving luminous landscapes. He'll show you that the key to creating depth and luminosity in your watercolors is developing your mid and dark values in the beginning stages of the painting rather than the end. You can have beautiful colors, intriguing shapes and interesting textures, but values are what make the painting inspiring.
"I discovered through teaching watercolor that many of my students were unsure of how to begin a painting. Over the years the same questions kept popping up—Should I paint the sky first? What would you do to start this painting? When I set out to develop the four-step process, I wanted a system that was easy to follow and placed emphasis on how to begin a painting, as well as one that added an element of structure to the painting experience. Focusing on values was the way to accomplish these goals."
