Value Sketch Practice

There is reading about values and there is PRACTICING sketching values. SIGH!! I have much to learn here!

It's the 'doing' that is important here Lin and you are on your way. Good for you!!

I agree whole-heartedly! Value is so hard to learn once you add color into the mix. Terri's right -- the doing is the thing! One trick I've learned when drawing from a photo -- I keep a small square of cardstock with a hole punched in the middle. When you put the hole over the part of the photo in question, the area is isolated from the rest and you can really see how light or dark it really is. Did that make a bit of sense?

I forgot to add -- the center cup is really nice!
