Greeting Card, Male Head after Durer. My card is available at my Zazzle shop. http://www.zazzle.com/arlenebabadartist*
I wish to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season and new year.
I have written about value; the white through grays to black scale. Every colour (hue, i.e. red) has a value (local value). The value and colour are affected by light, atmosphere, sky and objects around the colour. You squint your eyes to see values. Most artists agree that you should open your eyes wide to see the hue. But if you close one eye and look through a hole surrounded by gray, you will see the hue.
