Pattie: Subtle Value Changes

I’m using tech to help me see subtle value changes when the intensity of the colors are super high.

After every session I take a photo of what I’ve done, not only for the website but for review before the next session. Sometimes I review it just to point out what I need to work on next and some times I use Photoshop to turn the image gray-scale and compare it with the photo also in to gray-scale. This makes it very easy to see if I’m close in my values. It really helped this session because the shadow side of her face was much too dark and I spent some time fixing it.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
