6/25/21 DEMO: Creating Illusions of Depth with Alex Sharma



Creating The Illusions of Depth
LIVE DEMO with Alex Sharma 
 
WHEN: Friday, June 25, 2021
(10am to 11:30am EST)


The illusion of depth in a painting—whether non-objective or realistic—can be very dynamic and pleasing. This appearance is called atmospheric perspective and is used to make contours or objects appear 3-dimensional and to recede into the distance. This effect is obtained by changing values (lightness and darkness) of the color and by reducing the intensity of the color. in a 2-part demo,

Alex will demonstrate how to achieve this illusion of depth in both an abstract, and a landscape painting.

Alex will be using oils, but the methods and color mixings are the same for all painting media. Plan to paint in your medium of choice.


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:

MATERIALS:
1. Basic Paint colors in the medium of your choice (Cadmium or Cobalt yellow, Yellow ochre or Raw Sienna, Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson, Phthalo Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Cerulean Blue, Sap Green, Burnt Sienna and Titanium White)

*NOTES: The main thing is to have at least 1 yellow, 2 reds (cadmium and alizarin), at least 2 blues (ultramarine + cerulean or cobalt or phthalo) , and 1 green (sap is a good choice-- or Hookers or viridian). This way you will always have an excellent range of colors from which to mix other colors.

2. Paper
3. Brushes
4. Water Recepticle
