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...".
