I wanted to go over color options in my adult class.
I set up some onions in a still life and did these demos.
The first demo I did was as a value study with just one color.
The next one on the right was done with just two colors.
The third one was done with what we thought were realistic colors.
And the fourth done with more intensity and exaggerated colors.
I did this to show the students that exaggerating the colors really makes a painting interesting and fun.
I wanted them to step out of their safe zone and explore colors that they wouldn't normally choose.
These are about 3 x 5 inches each.
