“My studies with Henry Hensche focused first and foremost upon looking at simple, colored blocks in different light settings and trying to articulate them in paint. I found his method an invaluable tool for learning to isolate and simplify the masses, see the warm and cool differences in light and shadows and observe how the light key and surrounding colors all affect one another. When striving to see the myriad of colors in these simple, block still lives, one begins to see that a red, green, blue yellow or white block, is not simply that, but a combination of many other colors. Once this is understood with blocks, its application to more complex still life’s and landscape can be applied. The light must remain constant in order to observe the effects”
