I'm working on some exercises
for a new class I'm teaching;
"Expressive Paintings From Photos"
Three Values Plus One Color Exercise
The idea is to simplify a subject down to just three values,
planning them ahead.
L - light
D - dark
M+ - any middle value color
(for background only)
Afterward, I put the photo into the Value Viewer App
and discovered I wasn't very far off!
Value Viewer set on
I took the image with my I phone
from across the room at a restaurant.
There are paintings everywhere!
