Value scales are tool to help artists show the range of dark to light of a color.

Value is the lightness or darkness of a color.

Monochromatic is using only one color to create a piece of art.

1. Draw an ice cream cone with at least 3 scoops but more if you're hungry!
2. Choose a coloring material such as a crayon, colored pencil, pencil, paint, watercolor, oil pastel. Anything that you can control the amount of color you put on the paper.
3. Color it to show value using only one color. Color light to dark or dark to light! Just remember, dark you need to press hard and the lighter you get the softer you press down on the color. For watercolor add more water to create lighter colors, for paint add white for light, black for darker colors.
