VALUE & COLOR LESSON, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

Peggi demonstrates some simple guidelines for getting accuracy in your drawing such as making reference points and getting angles correct.

2 VALUE EXPRESSIVE COLOR, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

A fun way to explore and grow color knowledge. This exercise can be used with a still life also but we paint from the figure here. 10-15 minutes poses; that's it!

3 VALUE EXERCISE, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

More value plan work here!  You have to premix the values as guidelines, then assign their roles; two for shadow, one for light, or one for shadow and two for light.

5 MINUTE NOTANS, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

Value plans are most important! What are Notans? Notan is the Japanese word for dark and light. This can either be a sketchbook process or take out a canvas as I did here and time yourself.

PATTERN PAINTING, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

What do I mean by pattern painting? Refer to the Japanese woodblock prints that were introduced in 1890 to the public in Paris.

EDGES & PALETTE KNIFE, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

All color and value masses meet other color and value masses to create edges. In this exercise, we examine these edges through a still life.

FIGURES IN SUNLIGHT, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

All color and value masses meet other color and value masses to create edges. In this exercise, we examine these edges through a still life.

SIMPLIFIED PLANES OF THE HEAD, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

You don't have to consider yourself a portrait painter to paint a head that looks natural and pleasing.  The proportions I show you I will use every time as a springboard for placement of the features and underlying simple planes of the head.

MAKING MARKS, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

It's important to find the way you like to approach a painting. Some prefer to sketch first and others prefer to make marks. In this demonstration, I paint these two figures with no preliminary drawing.

LIMITED PALETTES, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

See how versatile just two colors and white can be! This lesson really helps with learning how to mix color from limited palettes applied to a simple still life.

SIMPLIFIED FIGURE PROPORTIONS, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

As different as figures may seem from each other there are some surprising similarities that I use every time.

FROM VALUE TO COLOR, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

You can't do enough work in value planning. This lesson demonstrates painting the value plan and then taking it to color.

SIMPLIFIED SHADOW MASS, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

You don't always need to render all the masses to achieve a completed look in a painting.

PAINTING FROM PHOTOS, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

I take a photograph from my large library that shows a good example of how lights can sometimes wash out and how darks can go "black."

SIMPLE VALUE PLANS, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

Along with drawing, I believe values/tones are one of the most important fundamentals and one of the most powerful to picture making.

LIMITED STROKES, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

I've used this exercise in every workshop I've taught and it has turned out to be one of the favorites.

HIGH VALUE KEY, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

In this 30 minute demonstration, Peggi explains and shows you step-by-step how to begin and stay on track to get the most out of the lesson.

SURFACE QUALITY, BY PEGGI KROLL ROBERTS

The more tools you can add to your "painting toolbox"  the more you have to draw from to really say what you want in the way that you want.

PACIFIC RHYTHMS, BY RAY ROBERTS

Pacific Rhythms is a painting demonstration with the Ray Roberts thinking out loud while he paints. Many of the foundations are covered with several key points to painting the ocean.

BLACK AND WHITE TO COLOR, BY RAY ROBERTS

Black and White to Color Exercise is an exercise I use in my portrait workshops. It bridges the gap between value and color when painting the head.
