Hi everyone today..I thought I would do one for our beginners ,I think tonal values are are so important , after all a good drawing can be spoiled by
bad coloring..,if in any doubt use a limited palette to begin ,even
try one color .ok .so what you can do, is increase the dark's by using darker colors ok you are painting a tree starting with the trunk and branches,. you use a dark, say, ultramarine with burnt umber ,now to paint the foliage you use cobalt and umber .so thats a lighter tone isnt it,so you are using color ,and thats one way
ok sorry to go on. I refer you to study the learning zone and other threads.all will be explained .
