1/07/2022 ONLINE DEMO: "Creating the Illusion of Depth and Volume in Your Paintings" with Alex Sharma



CREATING THE ILLUSION OF
DEPTH & VOLUME IN YOUR PAINTINGS
A LIVE ONLINE DEMO, with Alex Sharma 
 
WHEN: Friday, January 7, 2022
(10am to 11:30am EST)
 

It is very satisfying when we are able to paint a far distant horizon that really appears to be far away—or a 3-dimensional object that doesnt look flat.  Getting this to happen is a combination of changing values, and changing colors in specific ways.  Alex will explain—and demonstrate-- what needs to happen to accomplish the illusion of distance, depth, and volume. 
 
Paint along in any medium using the general color list provided for all Alexs demos.
