Understanding Tones – Comprehensive Tutorial with Barry McCann

Barry McCann was born in 1962 in Armidale New South Wales Australia. His interest in art began as a young student creating drawings for school assignments as well as drawing for home. He continued to pursue this passion and refine it through his college years, discovering it was not only a good way to earn some money, but to make new friends as well.


In this tutorial titled “Understanding Tones”, Barry shares his wealth of knowledge on painting realism, particularly with regard to colour mixing and tonal shifts.  He has a logical, meticulous approach to his practise which is inspiring and absolutely invaluable for artists of all levels.
