#7 CONTRAST & EMPHASIS

In this lesson we will discuss the principles of Contrast and Emphasis. The activity to follow will be the painting of a parrot which comprises two videos. The first video is the drawing and painting of the background and parrot, and the second video is the adding of the finishing details after the first painting layer is dried.

This video was filmed during the Christmas season in 2020 – while I was at family pastelles. You will hear children ask me questions at times (nieces and nephews) as it’s a busy time of year.
