From drawing to painting 3 steps transition. This video shows you how to make an easy transition from drawing to painting in three steps. A lot of people having a hard time transitioning from drawing into painting in general. Because the foundation of drawing is very different from painting, you will have to take a different approach. But of you are a good drawer, it will be easier for you to be a better painting as long as you understand the principles. I can really understand because drawing and painting to me use different mentality to execute.
Drawing focuses on using lines to communicate. To add more detail, you will still use more lines.
Painting focuses on shape, the better the silhouette the better you can convey form. To add more detail, you will use value to define light and shadow. Light and shadow are the essences of all forms.
Step one, instead of using lines, you will start using shapes. You can start with an outline to create shape. A good outline will produce a great silhouette.
Step two, instead of adding detail by using lines, you must use light and shadow to create forms first. Clearly define light and shadow are the foundations of good painting. Also, you have to know how to render basic geometry forms. Basic geometry forms are hidden in all forms.
Step three, when applying detail, you will have to consider the value range of the light area and value range of the shadow area. Only use the value that belongs to the range of the area, do not mix them. Decide where the value range of light and shadow will be and you will be a fine painter.
