How-to Friday's

I set up a new page and will be posting links to different How-to links on the internet (videos, e-books or links to pages) with regards to painting, watercolour, oil, acrylic, and mixed media. I will review these links and post up my thoughts on how effective they are.
My first reviews are for value charts.

Lori McNee explains The Importance of Value and; Tone in Painting in a very straight forward manner. Very easy to understand with examples provided.
Carol McIntyre gives a demo of creating a value chart in her video How to Make A 7-Step Value Scale. She provides step by step instructions in creating a value chart. She is working in oil paints. The video is approximately 13 minutes long.

Cheap Joe Miller demonstrates How to Make Your own Color Value Chart using watercolours. He creates a watercolour value chart of each colour. This chart is suitable for posting in your studio. This is a short video just over 2 minutes long. 

This is a value study I did  which includes a monochromatic painting usine Burnt Sienna - watercolour.
