The lecture had two parts: theoretical teaching and live demonstration. In part one professor Zhang analyzed the relation between sketch color decoration color and design color. It went from “how to look” to “how to conclude”, then to “how to demonstrate”, detailing the knowledge and skills of color extraction, image level processing, tone control, in-depth characterization and overall adjustment. During the second part, Professor Zhang displayed “The flower of sun” on a 100×80cm canvas, directly demonstrated the whole process from composition drafting to portray adjustment.
The whole lecture was carried out in a relaxing and lively atmosphere, during the interactive section, Professor Zhang encouraged students to make full use of the theory, combined it with the actual operation, which can eventually put theory into practice, making the knowledge easier to understand, easier to grasp.
