ELEMENTS OF ART: VALUE

THEORY FOR THE NOTEBOOK

ELEMENTS OF ART: VALUE 

This is our next task. You will draw a sphere and also the value scale as you can see in the example.

MATERIALS FOR THIS ACTIVITY: Soft lead pencil (2B, 3B, 6B...)

HB SCALE:  There are two graphite grading scales used to measure the hardness of a pencil’s graphite core as you can see in the image.Most pencil manufacturers outside of the U.S. use this scale, using the letter “H” to indicate a hard pencil. Likewise, a pencil maker might use the letter “B” to designate the blackness of the pencil’s mark, indicating a softer lead. The letter “F” is also used to indicate that the pencil sharpens to a fine point. Historically, pencil makers also use combinations of letters to tell us about the graphite — a pencil marked “HB” is hard and black, a pencil marked “HH” is very hard, and a pencil marked “BBB” is really, really black! Today, however, most pencils using the HB system are designated by a number such as 2B, 4B or 2H to indicate the degree of hardness. For example, a 4B would be softer than a 2B and a 3H harder than an H.

USED OF THE PENCILS ACCORDING TO THEIR LEAD: 

TECHNICAL DRAWING: HARD LEAD ("H" AND "F")
ARTISTIC DRAWING: SOFT LEAD ("HB" AND "B")
