Sketching and Value

value study farm house

Simplify your subject you do not have to be a slave to nature. What I mean by this, if you are painting outside you do not have to show every tree or shrub. A strong composition showing the value changes and details, and just create a great design.
Scale your values, remember lights, middle tones, and dark.
Shapes defines the area from surrounding areas by line, value or color. You will use line to create shapes but, from that point value will define the shape you drew and value can be altering at any time.
