Part II of my Colour Lesson about creating a glowing red is posted here.
I had so much fun creating this Red Parrot Tulip and while developing these glowing red washes, it occurred to me that I should share this information with you all. Red is a notoriously difficult color to portray – unless you know what I am about to tell you.
This is not a step by step guide of how to paint this subject. What I want to highlight are a number of points relating to painting a glorious glowing red using this study as an example.
In these lessons you will find info about warm and cool colours, shadow color, color temperature, creating glowing reds, yellow underwash ...
This Parrot Tulip study will be an ongoing tutorial where I will teach you many of the invaluable lessons that will help you create form with red – no matter which medium you choose.
In my Art Lessons section you will find more helpful articles.
