Value Applications

General Art Theory

On the left is a grey scale of ten values. On the right is an Ingres
painting with the color removed. Without the color, you can see the values that the artist used.

The following statements are a guide used by the Old Masters:

Mid-Tones should occupy 70% of your painting. Light-Tones should occupy 20% of your painting. Dark-Tones should occupy 10% of your painting. The painting on the right is a good example of this.
