Looking For Values

Iris 2019Let’s look for values, the amount of lightness or darkness, in my iris. The sun was shining so we have a wide range of values.
Remember that we are not talking about colors.
First, from what direction was the sun shining on the flower?
Where are the lightest lights? Where are the darkest darks?
Where are our midtones?
We have a lot of cast shadows, shadows that are created by another part of the flower blocking the sun from areas.
We also have shape forming shadows. Do you see them? They help the flower have shape and dimension.
Isn’t this flower amazingly beautiful!
