Mentoring Program.....9 value scale

This 9 value scale was part of my assignment, and it is surprising how difficult this exercise actually is; I learn it over and over again.  The bottom row of value swatches has the same mid-tone value in each center. I find it interesting the way that it looks on each different value.  For this exercise I used Vermillion Red, Lemon Yellow and Ultramarine Blue to mix the black.  Mixing black is a real art for me.  I love doing it and training my eye to better and better perceive it.

Very nice, Linda! Extra credit for adding the medium gray swatch to each tile of the value scale. And a beautiful mixed black from the primaries.
