Value And The Wyeths, A Lecture By Genevieve Davis

This is a fine lecture on the works of NC Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth, and James Wyeth that focuses on a discussion of how these artists have used the concept of value in their paintings. Special thanks to Keith Bond for sending a tweet out about this. @BondArtist 

I enjoyed this very much particularly because she shows some works of Andrew Wyeth that I had never seen before. I just love his work, and became a great fan of his when I was a teenager and discovered his work in an art book my parents had.

You can view more of her videos at medievalartrat on her YouTube channel.

On the same subject you may want to check out another blog I discovered by Clive Powsey that documents a 5 day watercolor workshop he did last year. This link will take you to the blog post about doing a Value Study in watercolor that I found quite useful. You will have to scroll down to the bottom for the post "Class One: Painting A Still Life With Boxes...".

  1. Terry, I love this post. What a treat! Thank you so much for introducing me to Andrew Wyeath. I was not familiar with his work.

  2. Thanks Joanna, I was always amazed at Wyeth's work, he was a remarkable artist.

  3. I just stumbled across your blog for the first time and thought I would say hello! I looked through a few of your posts and love your style. You have some serious talent.

    I'm a blogger as well, about the world of art. I like to write about my own paintings, but also information for other artists to inspire them and also help with the business side of being an artist. I love to hear what people are saying and doing, so I'm glad I found you! Hope we get to see more of each other in the future.


  4. Thanks very much Bethany for your kind comments.
    Best Regards

  5. Thanks for sharing this Terry, I think value is something a lot of us struggle with. I really loved the last painting where the shadow from the window is casting a shadow on the woman.
