Luděk Marold: Getting Color Out of Black and White
One year ago - By Gurney Journey
Many of the illustrations by Luděk Marold use black and white watercolor on a gray or tan board. That's a technique we're experimenting with, so let's see how he does it.
He uses the black transparently when painting the easel and the sculpture stand. He saves the opaque white for the window. The top planes of the dress are painted in semi-transparent white.
He uses white, black, and gray in varying degrees of opacity, letting the drawing show through in the figures. The warm tones of the board show up in all the leftover spaces.
Wonderful use of foreground elements.
