Design I // Value

For Design I’s fifth project, we focused on value. Students chose a photograph, magazine picture, or calendar photo, and were challenged to extract color from your chosen area, leaving only value. They painted 20–25% of the photo with acrylics in greys, following the original values so closely that the area logically fit within the unpainted, colored area. This challenge was much like a “paint-by-number” activity. If a well-done solution is photographed or Xeroxed in black and white, it should be hard to distinguish the area painted in greys from the original.

Below are some of the pieces that were submitted. All have aspects to be improved upon for their portfolio, but overall I was very pleased with their results!
