Edges are like the punctuation in painting. They are used to emphasize or downplay certain areas in order to draw the viewerís attention to various points of interest throughout the painting. The artist is given an additional tool in order to achieve a greater sense of volume and depth by using a variety of edges.

Through visual examples and a painting demonstration, Brian explores the importance of edges and explains the significance of each one and how to incorporate the following into your own painting:

Hard Edges and Soft Edges
Broken Edges
Lost Edges and Found Edges
Implied Edges

Here are some clips from Brian’s video on Edges:

  1. Brian Jekel

    “Thirty years ago, I began expressing to my art students the importance of having a good library of books . I also said that if you would have just one book it should be Creative Illustration by Andrew Loomis. Ten years ago, I added that if there were 2 books in your library it should be Creative Illustration and also Alla Prima by Richard Schmid. This year I added The Principles of Painting, a 4 DVD set by Brian Neher, to those two books. What these resources have in common is that they are all packed with information. Brian starts with the basics of sound drawing and builds with the fundamentals of painting that you would expect from a good art school. The DVD’s are filled with demos and examples that complement Brian’s clear explanations. Brian is articulate and thoughtful in his presentations. I highly recommend these DVD’s to anybody who is serious about being an artist or someone who would like to get started in painting.”

    “I have been a fan of Joe Bowler, the renowned portrait artist, for almost 30 years. I was so excited when I learned about Brian Neher and that he has been a Bowler student for over 15 years. Neher’s work is extraordinary, and one can definitely see the great influence that Bowler has had on his work. I couldn’t wait to purchase all of his videos so that I could learn more from him, especially the “Painting Outdoor Light” DVD. I am thrilled about how my color skills have improved since reviewing the video set. I now truly understand about how important color temperature is and how it can help turn the form and how to create “grays” that yield believable flesh tones. I often leave the videos running on my computer next to me while I paint, so I get to hear the principles over and over. It’s like having Neher teaching me in my own studio. The DVDs are very well done and extremely thorough on teaching the techniques. It is totally worth the money for artists on any level to help further their skills.”

    “Brian Neher’s video instruction series is by far one of the finest and most informative series on painting available. Brian’s approach to teaching is thorough and fundamental, giving the student who is eager for real knowledge the information they need in order to understand the guiding principles of value, color and light. I particularly enjoyed the way in which Brian presented his examples. As an Instructor, his illustrations helped me to clarify my own teaching approach, and I believe my students have benefited greatly as a result. Brian Neher’s portraits are stunning, filled with the mystery of light and color. In his video series, “The Principles of Painting”, Brian shares the same knowledge that has helped him to create such memorable works. He makes the information easy to grasp and remember. I appreciate that Brian did not focus on himself in the series but really focused on educating the artist in a clear and plain spoken manner, with the same commitment that he pours into each of his paintings.”

  4. Anne Campbell, author at Home Educating Family Association

    “Mr. Neher brings viewers into his studio and demonstrates the technique of creating edges as he explains the concepts, and viewers get to watch him create a painting. A nice feature of the Principles of Painting DVDs is how the words appear on the screen when new vocabulary or concepts are introduced. Mr. Neher’s enthusiasm for a subject that he is passionate about is engaging and interesting to watch. By actually demonstrating the principles as he explains them, Mr. Neher effectively teaches this more challenging technique.”
