Mid Value Madness!!!

Step 1 Light Value

Step 2 Mid-Value

Step 3 Dark Value

After a quick sketch… Step 1 is a light wash of orange/purple/green applied to paper that had been sprayed with water. This will be the light value in the painting. Step 2…When paper was dry the mid values were applied mostly in shadow areas….the cars and people where a positive stroke of mid value. Basically reclaiming the drawing…. Step 3…The final darks were established for depth and the use of a rigger brush finished up with calligraphy marks…
