DRAWING WITH SHAPE and VALUE

DRAWING WITH SHAPES AND VALUES step 1
Fill in the VALUE SCALE below using a pencil. Leave the FIRST box blank, then fill in the LAST box completely, making it as dark as you can. (Try pushing down harder on your pencil to get darker values). Then, gradually fill in the boxes to make a smooth scale, from very light, to very dark, so there is a gradation from the first white box to the last very dark box.

step 2 step 3

Choose seven different colored markers, then outline each of your squares above in a different color. Identify areas in the drawing below which match the value of the darkest box in your value scale, then outline those areas with the corresponding marker color. Once you have identified all the areas with that value, repeat the process for each value in your value scale!

What we will learn
How to create form by combining shape and value.

What we will do
Practice using only shape and value when drawing

you need:
