Paint All Over - 9x12''
Sometimes a good idea can be better with a little more thought. Recently I read Anne Blair Brown's blog reiterating Kevin McPherson's idea of mixing a light grey and dark grey + black to do value studies with.
What really made this process work easily was to use Richeson Grey Matters Palette Paper to easily determine whether my light (grey or colored) value mixtures are lighter than the mid-toned paper, and whether my shadow value mixtures (grey or colored) are a little darker than the paper.
We've all heard ''Fail to plan and plan to fail''. This plan is a good one!
