Painters Tip


More About Values


You have many decisions to make in using values as a painter. A preponderance of very dark values will set a mood of gloom, mystery, and drama, while a very light painting will set an entirely different mood of intense light, with washed out colors.

Most painters do not try to duplicate the values they see exactly because that course will be monotonous. The shapes of highlights and shadows are often revised to create harmony, unity and contrast.

Lights and darks in nature exist as a result of physical laws. You must adjust and take some liberties with values to create your own visual statement.
