A Word from the Editor
“Tonal value is one of the key art elementssome would argue the most important of all. The consideration of tonal value is essential for any drawing. Even a simple line drawing consists of decisions about value and thickness of the line. In a more complex drawing the artist generally decides on a value key, whether in the light or dark range or with a full range of values from black to white. It is tonal value that most creates the illusion of three dimensions in a drawing, and it is also the foundation of design.
I hope the wonderful collection of art here in Strokes of Genius 6 stirs you toward fulfilling your creative dreams.” Rachel Rubin Wolf
