Sarah's Value Studies



Sarah is studying value at present. Looking at an image of a famous actor and an image of a Roman Head sculpture. It's always good to work out your values first. It makes it a lot easier when you are ready to try a colour version. Value makes you look firstly at the larger structural areas and then move down to minor tonal changes.
Looking great Sarah.
The bottom image is Acrylic on canvas paper and the top is Oil on Canvas paper
