Renowned painter Sharon Sprung imparts incomparable lessons in creating the illusion of life. Working with a light box, she explains how light illumines form; she defines basic terms like mid-tone, highlight, cast shadow, etc, as well as chroma, value, temperature, and hue.

Finally, she shows you exactly how she mixes colors in order to create a vast range of lifelike flesh tones.
