Kee p the val­ues sim­ple

For the pur­pose of value study, you can plan com­po­si­tions with limited val­ues by lim­it­ing the de­sign to three sim­ple tones: light, mid­dle and dark. You can then build thumb­nails or pre­lim­i­nary sketches with greater ef­fi­ciency. This is an ef­fec­tive way to plan a paint­ing, be­cause it’s both fast and in­volves a straight­for­ward paint­ing process. In­stead of be­com­ing car­ried away with the fig­ures’ de­tails, you should only be con­cerned with their over­all po­si­tion and ges­ture.
