Juror:  Andy Evansen  AWS, PAPA, RRWS, TWSA

The single most important lesson I've learned about painting is that we don't paint things - we paint how light affects things. So many of my students struggle painting cars, or figures, or buildings. I tell them it's just a light side and a shadow side, nothing more. Get those shapes right, and the viewer will see a car, or person, or barn without my stressing with details. The painting itself, on a larger scale, is simply a pattern of light and dark on a 2-D surface that we use to create the illusion of a 3-D world. Value is more important than color in that regard, and I do value studies quite often before the painting just to reinforce the simple composition and get me in the right frame of mind.
