Drawspace lesson Y03: Value in colors.

This is one of the most important lessons on working with color given on this program. It talks about different values of color and how to use and mix them.
The subject of color wheel and color matching was always my weak side, so at times I tried to read as much as possible on the subject. But I guess that experience is everything here. That's why I so much loved a phrase on page 2 of the lesson: "...In the beginning it's mostly guesswork."

Just for the fun of it I decided to do several strips of pencil values - graphite and colored, 6 of each, all done with the single pencil.

It was fun. Relaxing. You should do it too.
