Free $2 Tutorial – Value Scales

January 18th, 2017

This week, we did a quick down and dirty on monochrome value scales.

You can watch this week’s lesson on the YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPbizb8mB2A

The Lesson:

A value scale shows how the paint will react with a tint and shade, as well as show the amount of tint and shade needed to attain specific values. For instance, in our video we find that Pink is not half red and half white because the red is too bold for that. It takes a lot of white to lighten a red, but not so much the other way around. Also, on the shade side I discovered that as I thinned the shaded red, it changed to a “purpley” color. Is that because there is blue in my red or because there is blue in my black or both?

Draw a grid. Fill the middle of the top row with your Hue (color). In our case, we chose red. To the Tint (white) side try mixing them 4:1, 3:2, 2:3 and 1:4. Do the same on the Shade (black) side. When you have your results, try thinning them with water or acrylic medium, again 4:1, 3:2, 2:3, and 1:4. If you have three or four different brands of paint around, try it within the different brands, and then again by shuffling them. Be sure and label each chart with the brand and hue of the paint so you can get that color again.
