Jazz and Painting

22 Feb

Looking over my seahorse painting series I wondered about the value scale in the paintings. There is a strong contrast of colour but it’s so easy to have the values be too close together. A way to check for this is to take a picture of the painting and then print it in black and white. By comparing the colour image to the black and white I can see that the value scale for this painting is working better than I first thought.
