The Value of a quick VALUE study
Day 1 we focused on the block-in paying attention to the basic essence (balance, gesture and proportion) while also utilizing the shadow edge. Before that however, on the left side we did some 12 minute values sketches getting the basic key of the painting, that is understanding how dark the general light mass is and the general shadow mass. This is a way of visulaizing your final drawing and preparing yourself to dive into the richness of the tonal varieties without fear.
