Elements of Art: Value

Special

Artists can create the illusion of light by being able to produce a wide variety of values. In our fifth episode on the Elements of Art, we explore how artists produce and use different color and tonal values. Through the lens of black and white photography, we look at how artists produce value scales and contrast, and how different kinds of lines change the way we perceive depth and space.
