Value Chart - Planes

Value Chart - Neutrals


I thought it would be helpful to create four versions of the same scene in different neutral/limited palettes. I started this yesterday, and am going to try to complete it by Monday using different "base" colors. In this one I used the same values used in class on Wednesday, using cad yellow and the black mixture, and lightening with white. It's helpful for me to have these permanently on a board, to reference in the future. Laurel is always advocating making value charts like this, so I'm pretty sure she'll be happy with me here. :)

Hi Julie,

The value charts are fascinating. It looks super to see the chart next to the painting. Great work.

That is such a great idea Julie. Thanks to you and Laurel. I think doing it would really help me incorporate the info from the colour charts that I made.
