The point of this assignment was to show the importance of how bright the values of different colors are. Art pieces are stronger when lights, darks and contrasts are used appropriately to direct the attention of the viewer. The often taught rule is: when working through a piece of art, take a grayscale look at it every once in a while to make sure the values and brightness of the image are still communicating effectively. 11"x17" acrylic on illustration board. 9 hours.
