Value-Scale Research

IMG_0768Unfortunately, I was unable to obtain the brushes and paint to use for this research, so I chose to use several pencils instead.  Creating the black and white boxes were the easiest.  In order to find the midvalue, and all of the values surrounding it, I started from the black in the last row.  I made each subsequent box lighter as I went down the chart, until I got to the midvalue.  I was happy with the midvalue I was able to achieve, and used that as a basis for the rest of the boxes in that row.  For the row with five boxes, I used every “other” value (dark, midvalue, and light) to balance it.  Finally, for the row with three boxes, I just added the midvalue.
