value study, grayscales:

mixing a black from primaries:

Color Mixing Guide from golden’s website

Mixing to achieve black and gray using Phthalo Blue G/S, Quinacridone Magenta and Hansa Yellow Medium

Step 1: Mix 1 part of Phthalo Blue (Green Shade) with 2 parts Quinacridone Magenta. The mixture will be correct when you perceive it to be the deepest blue without being described as purple. This is an approximate primary blue.

Step 2: Mix 2 parts primary blue with 1 part Hansa Yellow Medium.

Step 3: Once you master making your own black, create a grayscale like the following, by slowly introducing your black to titanium white.

download value study_grayscale.pdf for a guide.

———-

-complete 2 grayscales:

one with self mixed black + titanium white

Photo Study

-start with a photo provided in class.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

study 1- geometric distillation
-distill the portrait down to simple geometric shapes using 5 values.

study 2- organic distillation
-using the same 5 values, further develop the information in the photograph into more realistic organic shapes

study 3- smooth gradient
-using the same 5 values, now make an attempt to blend these areas of value into smooth gradients, so no hard edge lines exist.
