Why not you? Simplifications for you (8)
THESE ARE SOME TECHNICAL EXPLANATION SIMPLIFIED FOR READERS, ENTHUSIASTS AND BEGINNERS OF THE DIGITAL PAINTING.
6th exercise in digital painting
To move the feelings of the spectators, the artist uses not only the different families of colors and the different forms of lines and spots. He also uses a hidden weapon called VALUES.
Values, in digital painting, are the set of contradictory degrees of luminous bright parts and dark shadow parts, in an artistic creation.
The professional artist can feel with his eyes the values of an image. The beginning artist must use a technical means to test the values of his creations.
In this exercise; I advise you, my friends, to convert your image in colors to a black white image (use an application or a software, for example: http://www.convertir-une-image.com/effets-photo/effet-noir- And-white.asp).
Let’s try some pictures together:
- In painting 1, the image in black white gives us very low values, which makes the image monotonous and cold, despite the beautiful subject and the right choice of colors (the artist will be able to choose this type of images , When it seeks calmness the cold and the sweetness)
- In painting 2, the black white image gives us very high values, which makes the image emotional and warm, with the same subject and the same colors of the painting.
- In painting 3, the image in black white, gives us very low values, despite the good colors the image is too dark, too monotonous, and too heavy.
The great distance between the parts of the image that gives the great exciting value.
