BONUS CLIP: Curling Leaves



In this clip from her DVD workshop, Commanding Color, watercolorist Sue Archer shows you how to develop values without graying your colors. Sue layers the same pigments she already has on her paper to paint vivid middle values in a group of pineapple leaves. You learn how changing the color in one area of your composition affects viewers' perception of the rest of your painting.
