To practice creating tints and shades
we are going to create Blue Dogs.
Why use different values in a piece?
Helps to create depth and form giving the piece a three-dimensional
look, because real life objects and people are three-dimensional.
Adding value to art work makes it appear more real.
For example look at this
photo of an apple.
Now if we take out all of the color from this apple, we can still see the
different tints and shades of the apple.
By creating the different values we can recreate the apple very realistically
