Dissecting Paintings – Part 2 of 3
In Part One you traced the basic shapes as well as the smaller shapes of a painting. You shaded the shapes in black, white and gray, following the values of the original painting.
Part Two: Trace the same value shapes you traced in Part One. Change the values of each shape. Do several sketches, altering the values of the shapes. Observe carefully how the composition changes by altering the value shapes.
