Color as Value (From The Painter’s Heart)

Sun Set  Artist:Magunta Dayakar

I am coming to the term ‘Color as Value’. Here
everybody feels a problem in learning stage.

Every color is having some specific value in value scale. To understand, open a image editing software , such as Adobe Photo shop or Gimp. Turn colors into grey scale. Then you know the value of each color. But before doing this enjoy the painting as if though computers do not exist. Children will do this way. That’s why they will get the pleasure. Why don’t we? Of course, again it’s my opinion. Everybody will have their own way.

Understanding this value of color is the key to your painting success like a spinal card to our body.
