Color Studies for High-Key Paintings

In this follow up to the Intro to Landscape Painting course, Dan shows how you can restrict your value range to only higher tones, effectively creating a high-key painting. Since Dan's methods are so unique, it's helpful to have a more hands-on demo into his thought process if you wish to replicate this style. We'll then finish off with a short tutorial Adobe Lightroom, a useful tool for adjusting reference photos to fit your intended goals. (1 + hours)

Dan Schultz

With a background in commercial art, Dan has taken influence from many of the golden-age illustrators as well as from classical realism and impressionism. He believes that beauty is of great importance to the human soul and that God uses the beauty of His creation to communicate with humanity. 
Dan grew up in a small town in eastern New Mexico which provided little exposure to the world of art, galleries or museums. After graduating from college with a few years of graphic design work, Dan discovered Cottonwood Art Academy in Colorado Springs where he first met artists who were making their livings painting for galleries. He was invited to join the teaching faculty as the youngest instructor. Pursuing a career in fine art then became his goal and full-time career since 2005.
