SERIES THREE: POWER OF THE LOST EDGE–In painting, the way we handle edges often makes an otherwise mediocre painting an outstanding one. The lost edge is one of the most powerful methods for guiding the eye throughout the painting as well as uniting positive and negative space.
LESSON One–Merging Space
In this study, Dianne uses values from the inside to merge with the same values of adjacent space. The subject matter becomes only reference material, the REAL subject being the concept of the use of lost edges to unify space.
A new video Tip is available each week, so check back often to watch the collection build.
Here merging values from the inside of a shape with the adjacent space is an additional way to expand our visual vocabulary by focusing on a concept. One of the best ways to expand our working vocabulary and expand our realm of expression is to spend time doing studies where our intention is not about the subject matter, rather on a particular concept. The subject matter then becomes only reference material, the REAL subject being the concept. In this lesson, Dianne continues this very attitude appying the concept of using lost edges to unify a painting, using as her reference a yellow rose.
