Break it Down: Using Value Changes to Build Form
About the Workshop
In order to create two dimensional images that appear to be three-dimensional, understanding tonal change is critical. In this painting workshop with Durham artist William Paul Thomas, participants will be guided through an exercise that illuminates how value changes can help accentuate the illusion of 3D form of any object.
