High Key

color

So this assignment for my "Simple Isn't Easy" class was a couple weeks ago. I've been bad about keeping up my posting. But the assignment was to paint a high key painting, then add a few darks to move your eye. I did this on my ipad on a program called Procreate. It's a very fun tool for quick studies. I didn't have a value scale around so I think I got a few of my values a tiny bit too dark. But for the most part, they are middle value and lighter. Then I added the darks to really draw the eye. 

Below is the same image changed to b/w so you can really see how the values have merged. I am very happy with this one and am in the process of trying to do this in oil. It's so much harder I think. Learning a lot.
