Color and Light Workshop with James Gurney
July 6, 2011
The study of colored light effects is a great way to enhance both design and illustration skills by forcing one to see things in a different way. Instinct and falling back on familiar practices were of little help.
On the first day we painted from white plaster casts so we could better see and understand the effects of bounced light and color shifts. James gave several outstanding demonstrations and lectures.
We mixed our colors before we started painting, giving us the ability to make quick observations with the brush.
Meal times were spent in discussion and the sharing of experience and ideas.
These techniques will add yet another layer of storytelling to the visuals we present to our clients. Last time I checked, Las Vegas still had a few colored lights around the Strip.
Don’t forget, James will be here on October 29th for an informative and eye-opening lecture.
