Value (From The Painter’s Heart)

Perspective             Artist:Magunta Dayakar

 Value is one of the key elements in picture making.
In other way we can call it as light and dark. It’s a
gradation between highest light and extreme dark.
Every color has a specific value in grey scale.
Understanding Value is the key to successful 
painting.

There is one saying, that .. ‘Value is more important than color. If your value is right your painting also will be good.’

Before impressionists all paintings are dominated with ‘Value’.
