Value scale, home made
About the course
We can all go out and purchase a value scale to use as reference as we create our work. Here I demonstrate, then you make your own hand made value scale. I recommend that students make one by hand because the act of creating one fine tunes or "calibrates" your brain to see the overall range of value from black to white, but also helps you see the subtle, even steps between each value in a scale. The optimum scale in this case is 11-13 steps.
