Fleeting Memories, 8x10"

This small painting was created with the help of an App on my phone!  Sharon, a friend at Mainstreet introduced me to "ValueViewer", which allows artists to view their work in grayscale to check on value massing.  My painting started as it was below left.  It didn't have much punch or excitement, so I downloaded it into the App and looked at it in grayscale (below right).  I could see that I needed to separate my darks and lights a bit more for drama.  I deepened the darks and lightened the lights, and I'm much happier with the result.

  1. Sounds like a very useful app for checking tones! LOVE the dress....... Beautifully painted!!!

  2. I need to use this tool. I will ask someone who has a cell phone. I don't have one....excuse.....I live way out in the middle of nowhere.
    But I want this application. I need it. You always have something interesting up your sleeve. Ann (Red) Feldman.
