In this lesson, S9L3 Frontal & Back Lighting of  our  EXPLORING VALUE PATTERNS series,   Dianne explores how to create a field of light against a field of shadow as a value pattern to guide the eye.  The lighting of a subject is the single thing that gives it its value pattern.  Using as her subject, a rural road in Autumn, she demonstrates one way use the principle of major value contrast to create back lighting with shadowed areas in front.

Included with your download is a PDF of the finished version of this study along with the packet of examples of value patterns and Dianne’s Notan Value Scale.

 When we switch our attention from what a subject is to its various values in shadow and not-in-shadow, we find we are able to more confidently interpret our subjects.  Often the only thing that causes problems in our paintings is how we’ve interpreted the degrees of our values.  Many times that happens because we were more focused on the identity of the subject rather than the values that are within it.  Dianne hopes that this series will help artists struggling with values to find clarity and self confidence.

 

Among contemporary artists whose work reflects a confident use of value patterns,  Qiang Huang stands out as a master.  Take a look at his work on his website Gallery.   Also, you can see examples of how Dianne works with values by visiting her on-line Gallery
