Grayscale Demonstration Lesson

In this Grayscale Demonstration lesson I will share good and bad value examples. Seeing these examples side-by-side will give you a good visual of how value can make or break a painting.

What You Need To Know

I recommend using that mid-tone value as a starting point. We can refer to this as a base color. This base color will give you a starting point. From that hue you will add Titanium white, or Mars black to generate light and shadow, or Value shifts.

Note how the 'good' example has more form and believability and the overall structure makes sense. Where the bad example just doesn't read well. It lacks impact and poor Value fundamentals.
