Taking the time to see the least obvious colors in everything is the start. Then I make those colors bigger, bolder and brighter so they become the star. That is the spark needed to awaken our desire to know color better and enjoy it in our everyday lives.”
The demonstration will detail the artists approach to a landscape painting by discussing composition, perspective, color and value. Joe will also talk about the techniques he uses to create a feeling of blended colors and depth.
