TONE: Creating and using the Grey Scale
Understanding how to use the Black and White Tonal Scale is one of the fundamental rules of painting. Knowing how one tone affects another tone will increase the painters skill for all painting whether classical traditional work or contemporary abstract. The use of tone is the artists’ friend and the skilled artist has then the knowledge to manipulate the painting to create depth and spatial effect – you will be better able to paint what you see rather than create ‘the happy accident’ and not know how you achieved an effect.
