To many artists, value represents the single most important element of a painting. The compositional structure that the tonal values create in a painting is the armature that holds everything else—color and detail—together. It's what adds three-dimensionality to artwork and brings it to life. If you are a master of light and dark, then enter this contest today.
Winners will enjoy national recognition and be published in North Light Books' hardbound watercolor showcase Splash 18: Value | Light and Dark.
What are we looking for?
We will be looking for excellence and originality, as achieved via a variety of styles and subjects. The dominant medium must be watercolor, but minor use of other mediums is acceptable.
But what we really want is to be inspired by your work. If you've covered new ground through amazing tonal techniques, we want to see it!
