Hey Guys! I just thought I would share some of my favorite tools with you this week.
1. Color Reducer - Value Finder
The first thing I think you have to learn to do either in drawing or painting is understanding value comparison. This is one tool that is really great for that because it cancels out all of the color into one color, in this case red (sometimes comes in green too). So that you can look at your scene and your painting with it and make your comparisons. This is just to help you learn to see value instead of color, as some colors can really fool our eye into thinking they are either lighter or darker.
