Workshop : Tony Ryder, Part 1 When examining the tonal plan of my reference - whether it is a photograph or a live model - I frequently forget that what I am looking at is not an absolute whose values I must match exactly in my painting, but rather a guide for plotting value relationships. Too often, I have been a slave to my reference, when I should have intelligently manipulated the values I was observing in order to make a better picture. In his book, Creative Illustration, Andrew Loomis explains that there are specific relationships between the areas of shadow and light in a subject which are dependent upon the intensity of the illumination source. He expresses these relationships between light and shadow using the steps of the value scale, which, in his system, consists of eight equidistant tones ranging from White (1) to Black (8). Being able to accurately translate values from a live model to the canvas takes a certain amount of trial and error at first, but it becomes easier with practice.
