    I have one of those, but I have to admit I’m more likely to go with the grid method.  I’m just more used to it and you don’t have to keep adjusting something.  I think for plein air though, these things can’t be beat!

    Thank you for sharing the video, Yvonne!

    @Sandra-Strait  I so fail at the grid … a system that is so easy for so many.  There’s something about the box lines that restrict me visually and I just can’t get out of the square.  My brain is just weird like that. lol

    I know what you mean.  I draw my grid on a separate piece of paper and use a lightbox to see it through the paper I’m drawing on.  I find I don’t have a much trouble that way because the grid is less intrusive.  Even at that, I don’t use it often unless my subject is really complex.  I much prefer to just freehand it and live with any proportional or perspective mishaps, lol.

    I have just uploaded a video review on “1500 Mixing Recipes for Oil, Acrylic and Watercolor” which is a fabulous resource for beginners.  The Watercolour sections are clearly marked and the mixes include creating your values as well!

    Fantastic video, Yvonne!  Are you going to be streaming on a regular basis?

    Thank you Sandra!  Yes, I Live Stream on YT every Friday morning at 10:00 am EST (barring unforeseen health or life issues lol) BUT, my channel will be a mixup of oils, watercolour, guoache, oil pastels, pan and soft pastels as well as pastel pencils, coloured pencils (including watercolour pencils), graphite, and Bible Journalling … plus book reviews when I think it would be beneficial to a beginner.

    I have developed a love for so many mediums and love to play!  I love to experiment!  It’s how I learn best and want to encourage others to do that too.😊❤️

    No matter the medium you work in, the values in your painting can make or break it.

    Excellent video! I do think values are about the most important thing in your artwork.  Thanks for sharing it here, Yvonne!
