Artist's Value Finder Tools - Red and Green
No more guess work while you learn the concepts of Value - that is the contrasts between light & dark.
Red and green value finders are very useful tools for the artist who is learning value and learning to manage values.
How to use the Value Finders?
Put the transparent value finders up to your eyes to view your painting and voila! You can see if the value is correct for its position in the painting. The red and green set and laminated instructions are included in this package.
How do the Value Finders Work?
The red and green value finders will remove color and allow you to read the range of values without color distraction. The value finders allow the eye to read the gradation of values and check for correct form.
If you struggle with 'seeing' value, this tool will also help train your eye, so your paintings will look more dimensional and profssional.
When looking through the value finders, the artist can focus on the differences and similarities between light and dark, rather than on color. This makes it easier to make adjustments and corrections for a more successful painting. In the image above, observe the gray area relative to the color areas.
Value is more important than color in the success of a painting!

Value is something i struggled with always and forever. I saw Nadine Masters demonstrate this at a sdp convention and I got one. She said it would change the way I looked at values. She was very correct. AMAZING tool.
