Johnnie Liliedahl: Color Solutions


Video Length: 1 Hour 50 Minutes
Gift This Course

This second video in the "Illuminations!" series builds on the information provided in Vol. 1, "Understanding Color", and explores the role color plays in creating form, depth, and excitement in paintings. You'll learn about temperature, value, and intensity with respect to how they affect different aspects of your paintings, as well as look at how you select a color scheme. We'll also see how you can use the color panels, developed in Vol. 1, to give you precise mixtures for the components of a painting.

Discussion includes aerial perspective (creation of depth of space in landscapes through the use of color), how the color of the light affects color choices, the creation of form with color instead of value, how to use temperature and intensity, and uses of transparent and opaque paints.

I learn best in a classroom setting. Ms. Liliedahl not only demonstrated the principles of color theory but taught them systematically in logical order. As a gifted teacher always does, she presented the lesson using both methods in a way that made perfect sense. I so appreciated her direct approach, choosing to forego anything that would move her off topic, making for easy note taking. This is one of my favorites out of the instruction videos I've ordered from you. Thank you for making it available.

Color Solutions

How does one increase the intensity of a color without using white? How do you darken a color without black? Johnnie Liliedahl has the answers. In clear language she explains different artistic terms and then proceeds to give vivid demonstrations of when and where to use them.
Johnnie Liliedahl's ‘Color Solutions' is an excellent extension to her ‘Understanding Color' DVD.
