Use of temperature in oil painting

March 27, 2014

I added the course outline and supply list to the page "Lessons", one of the new tabs at the top of this page under the banner. 

Also included photo of exercise on temperature.

Each apple shows a different way of using temperature. 

1 - black and white underpainting used in each painting.
2 - shows warm and cool temperatures in both light and shadow side of apple
3 - only warm colors on light and shadow side plus background and flat plane
4 - only cool colors on light and shadow plus background is cool colors.
5. - warm and cool on light and shadow and neutral background and flat plane
6. - warm and cool on light and shadow with warm background

WHY:  Including temperature changes adds variety and interest to your paintings.
