tonal value Painters do not have the apparatus problems of a photographer, but they do face a similar value design problem: anchoring the middle value of a painting in a way that communicates the intended feeling of light or dark without sacrificing a complete representation of the tonal range. Our visual system naturally adjusts to the average luminance in our environment to produce the best visual representation. Because this adaptation also affects the appearance of any physical gray scale, the key to the value design of a painting lies in the distribution of gray values across the luminance range.

Drawing Linear Celtic Knots I've attempted on more than one occasion to explain how I go about drawing Celtic knots, but finding it quite impossible to describe with words alone, I finally decided to put together this small tutorial with visual aid. Most tutorials on drawing knots will emphasize use of a precise grid, but personally I don't feel that's always necessary.
