COLOR CORNER
Seeing Color
in Light and Shadow

Light and shadow (value contrast) are key to portraying depth and form. Find interesting lighting outdoors or create it with electric lights inside. Outside, I prefer early morning or late afternoon when the sun is low and shadows long. Inside, lights may be moved in may ways for dramatic effects. In capturing observed values, artists are wise to make the most of inherent value differences between paint colors, and take liberties with color choices. Any straight-from-the-tube light color can represent highlights. Any straight-from-the-tube dark color can represent shadows. Tapping broader hue choices, instead of adding white or black to lighten or darken colors, makes for more lively, expressive paintings. Looking for hints of color in light and dark areas leads to believable, appropriate value-over-hue selections. You are not obligated to "match" photo or real life colors!

"I love giving workshops at Venus Studios. The most interesting, talented, fun people attend. What a fabulous week!"
- Caroline


Venus Studios owner
Debra Mumm welcomes Caroline to her expanded location.


Katinka Clementsmith:
"Best workshop ever. I
am learning so much!"


Barbara Weightman:
"I learned so much Caroline. I'm planning to paint tomorrow and will be thinking of you."


Caroline admiring Rebeca Gilad's progress.


Sharon Bock: "It was a
GREAT week. I hated to
see it end and am eager
to block time for more
painting now that you've
lit a fire under me!"



Helen Newsome:
"I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed your workshop.
I have taken lots of them, and always come away with some new information, but the amount you covered and got across in 5 days was by far the most I have seen. In a fun and unintimidating atmosphere, we learned so much that will help
our art. I'm already working on a new acrylic piece using my new
color knowledge. I'm
very pumped!!!"



Glad Potzus:
"Thanks so much for your help. Keep teaching and stay young."


Katinka Clementsmith:
"What a great week with Caroline Jasper at Venus Art Studios. Caroline is a color expert and this is the second time I have taken her workshop and
it won't be the last."


Lynn O'brien exhibiting palette knife prowess:
"It was lots of fun."


On the day more red gesso arrived!


Susan Frommer

Thanks to Susan for her ingenious idea of converting an egg carton into a brush rest.


Lisa Jacques:
"I want to thank you
again for being such a great teacher. I furthered my knowledge last week in your class, while having fun!"
