Painters Tip

This is a fun little value exercise I do with my workshop students. I used pencil for my illustration here, but for the workshop we use paint.

Value Exercise

Painting One

Fill your painting with an arrangement of trees of various sizes, some single, some touching and overlapping.

Open space should be allowed between some of the trees. Create a mid tone value in the negative space.

Some of the trees will be black, some will be #8 gray , some #2 gray and some pure white.

Try to form patterns with the black or white trees which will pull the viewer through your painting and create balance.

Painting 2

This is a repeat of the above exercise using color.
