Taught by Jan Swenson

This will be interesting. It has a much bigger impact on your painting than some would think.

I'll bring you an example of a nice painting I had high hopes for that went SO bad because of the wrong values.
And if you've ever done graphite drawing, values is what it's ALL about.
We will also dabble in a bit of glazing to add colour after our values study.
Price will be $2.00 or $3.00 if you need a surface.

Supplies needed:

- We will need a few hair dryers, I have one.
- Your usual painting supplies
- 8 X10 (approx) white surface, I have white base-coated MDF boards for $1.00 each.
- Tracing paper
- Dark Transfer paper and pencil or stylis
- Spacious pallette or pallette paper for blending grey shades
Brushes needed:
1/2" Flat
#8 Flat or about 1/4"
#4 Flat
#2 Round
and a Liner Brush
(Sizes are approximate/flexible)

Should be a fun evening and I am looking forward to seeing you all.
