To address the challenges of painting color, Steven Assael explores with his students the properties and effects of light, as well as ways in which past artists have approached these all-important topics.

“Painting is essentially about building relationships, from the part to the whole. The beauty of great paintings is their inherent totality—each part is in relationship with every other part, and these relationships in turn support a larger scheme.”

Robert Johnson
