Exercise Visual Value Scale

Use the formats on Appendix, page A-7 for this exercise. Your completed project should look as below (fig 2-21). Leave the first square white, while making the last as black as the pencil will allow. Using a number 2B pencil, shade the remaining blocks in even graduations, pressing from light to dark. Each block should be one solid tone, each darker than the previous one.

Shading can be achieved in many ways. For this exercise, use pencil to create even tone variations within an area. To check the tonal differences, squint while looking at your work. Squinting will assist you in seeing the tonal differences. Repeat this exercise using other media and techniques as covered in the next lesson.
