More Information:

Value (think grey scale) is truly the bones of a painting, and in this workshop you will learn how to strengthen your image by utilizing the concept of Notan* and then pair that with strong brushwork/mark-making. In essence, by removing the complex and emotional layer of color, you can focus on demystifying the landscape.

*Notan is a Japanese term that refers to the arrangement of dark and light elements in a painting.
