When you go to school as a child with a bunch of drawings on the wall, you’ll quickly gain the habits that you need for drawing.
Here’s how it works:
When you draw, you are drawing a block of whatever color you want. This is called color contrast. When you are drawing you need to be able to see contrast from white to black. This is called the grayscale (or monochromatic) effect. If I see you drawing a square of color, don’t ask me what the color contrasts are between its walls. Don’t ask me how much you are seeing contrast in each block of color (I’d prefer you not ask). Instead, ask me what colors you are seeing. And then ask yourself why. How do you see this? Why can you see a difference in color when drawing from a white block of block of black than from a black square? This is called the lightness and darkness effects. Why do you see the difference? This is called black-and-white printing, also known as grayscale printing. When you get to the more complicated grayscale paper, you’ll see more contrast than you will with block of color. If you can’t read it well, just ask yourself why. Why can you perceive a difference between white and black? When your colors work well together, you will see contrast in areas of black. How do you tell the difference between light and dark areas? You can’t see them, but they can be detected through the contrast of the two light tones. Why do you notice lightness, darkness, or both? This is called a contrast ratio. How did you get such perfect and consistent contrast without actually seeing it in the real world? How? This is called perceptual color matching.
Drawing from a white block of block of color is called pure white.
You can get some good lightness and darkness control by drawing from a small, block of black or white.
The best block to draw on with grayscale printing is black with dark gray. The best block to draw on with pure white is white with dark gray (or black with white) – if you are using the correct paper, and if you see the contrast in your art that you want.
In a perfect world, you’d see all the basic shades perfectly straight through a black square, with no contrast at all anywhere in the black color.
In real life, we don’t always see things straight through black
