Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Painting the midground, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- We have finished work on our foreground layer and now…let's make our mid-ground layer visible and let's…work on it too, just the way we did it with the foreground.…This time we will start with three values or three colors…right from the beginning.…In the foreground we started with just two colors,…but now we have a highlight, a mid-tone…and a shadow color here.…I just want to show you that you can…work with that too,…and actually it's a matter of practice and experience…how many colors and values you can manage at a time.…
And I would just advise you to start with very few colors…in the beginning, maybe just only two…like we did on the foreground,…and if you start to feel more comfortable,…just add another color to the mix…and in no time, you will be able to handle…a whole bunch of colors at a time.…As I said, the general philosophy behind this…is to break down a complex task to…separate, simpler tasks,…but if the simpler tasks…start to bore you,…if you want to have a bigger challenge in your work,…you can always merge tasks and like here,…
