This is a value study with found objects from the beach. I used watercolor paper, black waterproof ink, one round brush, and a bamboo pen. I filled ten sections of an empty styrofoam egg container with water. I added one drop of black ink in the first section, two drops in the second, three in the third, until all ten were filled. I incorporated all ten values from light to dark in this painting. Rembrandt, Albert Bierstadt, and Winslow Homer were masters at displaying remarkable tonal values.
