Jason Manley – COLOR AND THE THEORY OF LIGHT

If you’re an artist looking to expand your knowledge on Color Theory and Light; this is definitely a must video to check out. If you have trouble getting your images to pop, or maybe they look to flat and saturated, or have trouble deciding what colors to use for a painting, or maybe you think you feel you have to use every color in your paint collection? Jason Manley gives a great presentation on Color Theory, gives great examples from the Old Masters approaches to handling light and color. He also gives advice and examples of how color theory and light are used in blockbuster films and video games.

COLOR AND THE THEORY OF LIGHT is one of the most elusive courses in education. We will be delving deeply into the importance of lighting theory for illustration, concept design, Fine Art, 3D, film, games, comics, and visual media of all kinds. Communicating the visual feeling of light, and depth of mood is of the utmost importance when making art, no matter the field or industry. Accurate visual, abstract, and emotional qualities of color will be focused on. We will cover basic, intermediate and advanced color theory as directly related to making visual art. Students will learn how to create focal areas, pictorial space through color movements and atmospheric perspective as well as narrative color control for precise and purposeful visual storytelling.
