Little Peaches on Green

Blogger was down ! I didn't think that could happen, it has been forever just there, like gravity, doing what it's supposed to do and costing nothing. Amazing.
On Wednesday I had the second class with Jennifer Balkan and managed to do a passable value study (10 minutes) from the model. Again, I can see that values have to be mastered or there is not a believable sense of mass and weight. And the other issue, color....she mentioned that it was just a skin hung on top of the values, I think this is how it was worded, but the phrase has stayed with me, what are all the things that can mean....I think one of them is, that color is --- shudder---incidental. Or it is secondary in importance to value in realistic work. Yikes!

  1. Love these peaches! Interesting thoughts from your class about value and color. I am seduced by color and can neglect the importance of value for realism. It's gotta have form! My class with Catherine Kehoe starts the first week of June-I'm excited to study with her.
