Using Value

This is a Keynote presentation given on September 12, 2018 at the Plein Air Utah Event in Midway, UT. (

The subject of the presentation is VALUE.

I discussed how it is impossible to duplicate the values in nature but that we can maintain value relationships.

I am currently producing an online art course that will teach these concepts in much more detail. If you wish to be notified about free content and updates, click here.

Thank you.


P.S. Here is a link to an article about the event from Outdoor Painter Magazine.

The bar in the center is the same value.

Is the value of the garbage (light shape) lighter, darker or the same as the sky?



Light dissolves edges.
