Lesson 5 Photo Value Study

Lesson 5 Photo Value Study

In this lesson, we were to choose an inspiration photo, crop it to create a tight composition, and recreate it in an achromatic color scheme (using only black, gray, and white fabrics).  I exaggerated the value contrast from the photo to make a more dynamic piece.  I also simplified it by leaving out the water droplets (didn't think I could reproduce them in fabric!).  My inspiration photo is here and the cropped version is here.

My favorite so far. Just live blacks, whites and gray.
