(From An Evening In The Classroom)
all images by Harvey Dunn
When values are contrast use subtle color when values are subtle use contrasting color.
The character, position and weight of an object are in the edge
You must make the main thing in your picture appear most important. If anyone tells me my hat is more important than my head –by God I’m taking off my hat.
When you feel like putting something into your picture or do not know what is the matter with it, take something out.
To paint a mass simple and big you must keep out all the lights and darks that do not belong to its general value.
If you want to be clever in your picture don’t let anybody catch you at it. If they catch you you’re not clever.
