Finding The Tonal Key
Workshop with jack Cove
Our natural vision allows us to see a vast range of tone when we observe the world. It is impossible to represent the whole range of light and dark we see, therefore, as painters, we need to select and simplify. One way to do this is to find the right tonal key, which will allow full expression through colour and let colours have room to ‘breathe’. Finding the right tonal key for your subject will allow you to paint highlights and shadows as individual colours and so enliven your paintings…
