•  09 September 2008 andalusite Making marks with a stick portfolio Martin Harvey Aberdeen, United Kingdom I have recently joined cgtalk, so Im catching up with the posts. This reply may not be any help as it is 8 months since your original post! I have no formal training in painting / colour theory. The key chart seems to be the one with two rows of numbers, 10-0 in the top row and 10-0 10-0 in the bottom row. The numbers refer to the value of a colour, ie the tone. Black = 0, white = 10 The bottom row is in two parts: the numbers 10-0 on the left are the values in the light. The numbers 10-0 on the right are the values in the shade. The top row is the value that is painted. So using the example of a value of 7....... We can find this value in the bottom row in two places, one for the light and one for the shade. The corresponding values in the top row are 8.25 (for the light) and 2.5 (for the shade) which are the values we would paint with. After this point my head started spinning..... with the spheres lit by front light and back light. Personally I don't like these mechanical approaches. I would suggest looking at lots of paintings, photographs and CG renders to see how the light works. I have found I look at scenes both intuitively and analytically. In terms of the lighting I look at it as if it was CG....with spot light, fill light, rim light and ambient. Where are the form shadows and the cast shadows? What colour and value are they? Norman Rockwell is quoted in post. His painting "Freedom of Speech" is an example of the 'front' lighting. There are few modelling shadows as if there is a lot of ambient and reflected light boucing around. share quote
