The Neher Signature Training Series is an instructional course which focuses on teaching the foundational principles of representational art by demonstrating how each one can be applied directly to the art of painting. When understood and applied, these four principles are what govern every decision that is made during the painting process and give the artist the freedom to better communicate his message to the viewer. An understanding of Drawing, Values, Color and Edges is vital in the education and growth of an artist. By learning the principles that go into the decision making process, the artist is then equipped to face any challenge in painting, regardless of subject matter. In a world where technology and techniques are constantly changing, these principles remain timeless and have been used by great painters of the past for centuries.
The purpose of this series is to help educate and provide a source of information that will help to answer some of the important questions that many artists are faced with. Through the use of visual aids, examples of past master painters, palette demonstrations and painting demonstrations, the artist is given a variety of information in order to more easily grasp each principle. Once each principle is understood individually, the artist is then faced with the challenge of using all four together as a single unit in order to paint a picture. For this reason, I have produced a separate DVD for each of the four principles (Drawing, Value, Color and Edges) which provides the time and information that is needed in order to more fully explain each principle. All together, the Principles of Painting series contains 7 hours and 50 minutes of instruction.
In addition, I have also produced a fifth DVD which demonstrates how to use all four principles together while painting a head study from start to finish. This video places an emphasis on how to paint the effects of outdoor light and also includes Bonus footage which discusses the differences between indoor and outdoor light, value relationships and using warm and cool temperature changes. A palette demonstration of how to mix flesh tones is also included in this additional material. This DVD contains 8 hours of instruction.
