3 Tips for mastering your own painting.

Latest Paint By Shadow HobbyX







On March 8, 2015, HobbyX at The Dome was another huge success for Paint by Shadow! We used a YouTube video looping on a screen to encourage people to join, and I had a customer show me what he’d done with a Paint by Shadow he’d purchased at HobbyX Gallagher in September. We also launched the Paint by Shadow Value series, which sold out. The Value range offers more choices to our customer base, and the opportunity of to build confidence before moving onto the Professional range.

About the workshop:

Paint by Shadow also hosted its first workshop at HobbyX, which received great feedback. This has lead to the planning of regular workshops for beginners.

The workshops teach basic principles of colour mixing and tonal range, important to know to complete a successful Paint by Shadow painting. A few tips for beginners:


Tip 1 # Identify  your  tonal range ie from shadow to hi-light on your image.
Tip 2 # Add one colour down on colour wheel  to mix your  shadow colour
Tip 3 # Add one colour up plus white to mix your hi-light colour






So what is the difference?

Professional range is printed on 360 gsm artist canvas, stretched on artist frame
Value range is printed on 135 gsm canvas and stretched on a supawood frame

For the time being both ranges will run the same images,giving customers choice of
quality of canvas they wish to paint on.

Sizes and Pricing:

Professional range is available in: 20x30cm ; 30x40cm; 40x60cm; 60x80cm and 80x120cm. Value range is available in 20 x 30cm and 30 x 40cm.

In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics.
I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently.
You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this

We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later.
First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between the safe …
