The purpose of the Color Value Assignment is to strengthen the understanding of value to create depth.
Start with the paper in portrait format. Draw approximately 9 vertical lines that wave back and forth, but do not cross. Once this is done, draw one horizontal line that waves across the middle of the paper. See below for examples.
All the curved lines above the horizontal line will curve up. All the curved lines below will curve down. Once all the curves are completed, the middle horizontal line is to be erased. After all the curves are done, they need to be traced in pen.
The sample below does not fulfil the assignment. The color should be added/drawn in the direction that follows the original lines.
The example below does not work as there is little to no variation in the value.
The below project works fairly well to convey depth.
Below project: Not enough contrast to create depth.
Below is an example of excellent work: Great attention to detail.
Below: Color is added in the wrong direction.
Below: Strong project. Creates depth.
Below: Colors are added incorrectly. This will be explained in class.
Excellent work and use of color.
