Transparency in the World of Art!
Transparency in the World of Art
In the world of art, transparency is the quality of being able to see through different layers of a work of art. Just like the eye can easily see through clear water or a fabric that is very light, a skilled artist can actually create those same effects using different techniques! It can bring a painting to life by very closely resembling what the eye can see, or in this case, what the eye can see through!
This week at Priscilla & Tiffany's Art Studio, we are focusing on teaching our young artists the special technique that helps artists create that transparency effect! Lightly sketching a transparent still life on paper and using the value scale to match every dark and light shape!
