The Elements of Design – Values

May 5, 2016

In this lesson we will be discussing the topic of values. It is an important element of design that will help you understand how to create form, depth, contrast, and the illusion of perspective by learning how to control changes in light. We will start with some basics and then take a look at examples of how value has been used in traditional drawing as well as painting. Then I will do a demonstration to show you how you can get the values from any image in order to help you see the ranges that certain colors fall into. I will also share with you some of my own process as I do a digital painting by finding the values and landmarks of a portrait.
