On Painting Rocks – Part 1: Understanding Rock Forms in Light
In this Informational Slide Show Jan discusses the importance of seeing and understanding the rock form in light before painting it. She begins with the ways Georgia O’Keeffe approached some of her paintings of Ghost Ranch rock forms. Then, using a powerful photographic diagram, the basics of light, shade, reflected light and the cast shadow are described for understanding.
The presentation finishes with Jan’s very thorough step by step demo of painting Echo Canyon Rocks in full light so that the viewer understands how and when to deal with each aspect of the rock form in light. While you move through the slide show, you can pause to read and study the photographs and you can also listen to Jan’s unhurried and thorough explanations about what you are seeing and reading.
