Value

Value refers to all the lights and darks found in a work of art.

  • Value ranges from black to white, with shades of gray in between.
  • Value can be applied to color hue, or it can remain black in white (gray scale).

Somewhere along the way between psychology lab and art tests, the rule developed that the eye can discriminate 9 distinct gradations in lightness, from lightest to darkest. This 9 step value scale was created.

Of course, we can see a much larger number of value differences than that. The actual limitation is that a larger number of value steps becomes impractical to recognize across different situations and match accurately with paints.

Value depends on how much light a surface reflects.

A surface has a dark value if it reflects little light. It has a light value if it reflects a lot of light. (Also known as crosshatching)

Every time you make a mark with a pencil, you are creating a line with a certain value. The harder you press, the darker the value.

A series of closely placed lines can create areas of dark value… or facial hair.
