|Checking it against the Munsell chip|
On the third day, we painted Munsell value scales onto primed pieces of wood in order to use as reference, and we began painting. The real challenge began here, as we worked towards creating convincing illusions of value blocks. We used all of the tools at our disposal, including squinting down, our Munsell value scales, and our own intellectual reasoning based on our understanding of what we saw before us. We progressed from basics objects such as single value cubes, to more complex geometric shapes, as well as cubes sharing two or more values. The oil painting presented a lot of new challenges for us, which was both a little daunting and exciting.
