Beginning Homework 5/21/2020, Let Value do the Work
Here are a few images that rely heavily on the darkest darks to carry the narrative content of the scene. They have been desaturated to make it easy to make a monochrome version. Take all the time you need. When the monochrome is finished, dry it thoroughly. Now, paint with colors right over the monochrome as loosely and as sloppily as you please. Here's a chance to paint outside the lines! It's best not to stroke your brushes back and forth too much. That could cause the darks to run and get streaky. The idea is to see if you can depend on the darks to tell the story, and to get some wet and juicy edges that remain visible when the painting is done.
