Chapter 5: Experimenting With Value

Chapter 5: Experimenting With Value

Learn the basics of color theory in this brief introductory course! In this experience, you’ll use the knowledge you gained in the last video to paint a grayscale or monochrome version of a simple landscape. Using the same composition as the landscape you created in the warm/cool color palette exercise, you'll see the amazing impact that value has on the depth and dimension of your painting. Follow along with Ana in painting in grayscale, or challenge yourself with a monochromatic palette to fully experience the power of value in color!
