Paintings that P-O-P!
Using Values for Dramatic Results

LIVE DEMO with Alex Sharma 
WHEN: Friday, August 6, 2021
(10am to 11:30am EST)

Value variations, or lights to darks, are the basis of strong and vibrant artwork. The use of light and dark values and textures will bring strong contrast through bright highlights and dark shadows.

Alex will demonstrate in watercolor using one color (think black and white photography). However, the lesson applies to all paint media.

Come prepared to paint along using one dark color from your paintbox. 

Materials Included: No materials are provided by Art League of Hilton Head for this demonstration.
Requirements: All LIVE DEMOs with Alex Sharma are designed so that students can watch, or paint along with while they watch. If you choose to paint along, you're welcome to paint in whatever medium you choose, as almost all of the techniques can be applied across mediums.

For this Demonstration, here are a few supplies Alex recommends having for those of you who wish to paint along:

1. Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor or Pastel
2. Ultramarine Blue, other dark blue or Black
3. Paper
4. Brushes
