Albert's trees

  I am hosting an oil painting workshop for a Master artist Albert Handell in Austin, TX. Albert has done a wonderful demo today. I was amazed by his palette knife technique and his impressive palette of exotic colors. Besides helping Albert and all workshop attending artists with their logistical needs, I got chance to paint a little as well. This is what I did today. I always thought painting trees is not my a cup of tea, but I liked what I have learned.  ..read more

  I took Robert Moor's class at Scottsdale Artists' School. I have learned a lot. Mark making is so important to make a painting impressive and expressive. I have not spent enough time to develop my mark making skills. Currently, I am still concentrating on color studies, but soon I will have more fun like painting this one ..read more

Color Relationship from Light to Shadow

  I took a photo of an orange lit by a single light source, then measured 10 color samples from light to shadow using the "Color Analyzer App" we developed. The three numbers on each color sample are its hue, chroma, and value. On the color wheel, we can see: (1) in the light area 1 to 5, the hue shifted from yellow to red orange. This hue shift is often referred as the "prismatic color shift". (2) in the shadow are 6 to 10, the hue does not change. On the "value vs. chroma" diagram, we can see the variation of chroma and value is strongly corelated by following two straight lines. These ..read more

White Chrysanthemum

  Continuing on non-colored paintings. This time I worked on a floral project, cool light warm shadows. All those greys need to be harmoniously related to create solid forms. The color temperature needs to be consistent to avoid muddiness to occur. I do like vibrant colors, but this kind of near black-white exercises helps me to lay a solid foundation, and the painting will have much more potential for further development.  ..read more

Bull Creek in Winter

  Painting a landscape in a cloudy day, the sky light is pretty neutral (gray), but is the light warm or cool? To be honest with you, I was not sure. So I run my "Warm-n-Cool" filter (see my previous post) on the reference photo. Lo and behold, it is warm for sure. I guess the physics does make sense. Behind the clouds, we have the sun and the blue sky. The warm sun light dominates the cool blue sky. The cloud works as a diffuser, and average out the light. So the stronger sun light makes the skylight warmer ..read more

"Warm-n-Cool" Filter

Two engineers and I have developed an image filter called "Warm-n-Cool". It can remove the influence of local colors and show the color temperature relationships of the light and shadow. Basically, it changes a full color image to a two colors (hues) only image. The two hues are orange (warm) and blue (cool). I have used "Warm-n-Cool" to filter my reference photos, and gain much better understanding the specific color temperature distribution across the image. In many cases, I can use orange and blue only to paint an entire painting realistically. The "Warm-n-Cool" filter is free for ..read more

  Life is short. How can we become good in painting QUICKLY? We all know we need to practice, but to accelerate the progress, my secret is: USING SMART TOOLS. The posted image shows that you can "squint" your ref photo digitally. Here is how to do it: Go to qhart.com(my website) > click "Apps" > click "Painter's Guide 3.0" > load your ref photo > click "Filter" > click "Oilify". Now you have no worry you develop wrinkles because you squint a lot during painting time. I have quite a few apps on my website, which are free for you to use. I want to thank the engineers behind ..read more
