Values Check




Through the magic of Photoshop, I am able to see the values of this painting without any distraction from color, which confuses the eye and sometimes creates the illusion that some area is lighter or darker than it actually is.

So far, I think the values are fairly good. There is a complicated area in the left center where the value of the groom's shirt is almost the same as the value of the horse's nose, but that can be changed.

Looks great!

Did you desaturate the image in Photoshop?

You can also hit CTRL-L to play with the levels and see how things would look like at various tones of gray.
