Throughout this exercise we learned how media is the material used to make art and value is how light/dark something is. Using this knowledge, we made 6 different value scales/drawings with different medias, in order for us to learn how to work with them. They all differed in ways to create value, for example, with graphite or color pencil one can simply lightly use it to make highlights. In contrast, for oil pastel, chalk and charcoal, we had to add white to colors in order to make it lighter and black/darker colors for shadows. Ink was the most unique as it to create value, lines simply had to be closer together or father apart.
