Color!

For the past three days I've been at a color workshop with Bill Perkins, an art director from Disney. It was awesome. I love painting. I love painting so much. Because you get to play with color. And color is.. kind of miraculous. And Bill is quite insightful.

Anyways, at the workshop we painted a bunch of different model setup with different lighting conditions emphasizing different principles in color theory. We usually spent about thirty minutes to an hour and each pose, and we weren't supposed to focus so much on the drawing, just on color and value relationships.

Here are some of my studies from yesterday and today... The first day's batch didn't turn out so great...









I loved working with colored lights. I have some new ideas on how to design and execute a picture. I'm excited to try them out.
