2D Project #9, #10 & #11
. All three of these exercises will be done on the same piece of illustration board, so read the instructions for each of these assignments and design your page so you will be able to fit all of them on one piece of 15" x 10" illustration board.

Projects #9-11
. Create a series of grayscale and color scale rectangles to demonstrate proficiency in color matching, values, hues, tints and shades.

. 15" x 10"

. Four rectangles each 1" x 9" in size arranged precisely on the board, evenly spaced and horizontal to the edges of the board.

. Illustration board, Acrylic Paints (Cadmium Red Medium, Cadmium Yellow Light, Ultramarine Blue, Black and White), brushes, colonial white paper, a palette of some kind, container for water, rubber cement, pencil, T-square and ruler.

Project #9
Draw a rectangle 9" x 1" lightly in pencil on the board in the appropriate place. Divide the rectangle into nine equal sections, each 1" x 1" in size. Starting with pure white, make a value scale which moves to pure black. Each step in the scale should be an even increment from the previous value. Once completed, there will be a series of gray values starting with white and gradually changing step by step to black. Keep each 1" x 1" rectangle uniform in color and smooth. Masking tape may help to keep the edges clean and precise.

Project #1O
Using the same layout as in Project #9, draw 2 rectangles 1" by 9" divided into 9 equal sections of 1" squares. Each rectangle is for one of the primary colors (you’ll only be using 2 of the 3 primary colors for this step). These will start with white, then add a small amount of color in each step until you get the color at full strength (it should fall at a level of tonal value equivalent to the dark of the solid color) somewhere in the scale. Then start adding black to it until the final rectangle is solid black. Since each primary color has a different value, the pure color will not necessarily be the middle rectangle. Because yellow is a light value, the pure yellow will be closer to white while blue being a darker value will be closer to black. Red is the closest to a medium value so it will be in the center of your value scale. Continue to keep your color mixes as even and as smooth as possible. Once the scales have been completed, place a small dot (made from a paper punch perhaps) of the pure color on each of the rectangles within the scale. Perhaps the easiest way to do that is to paint a piece of paper with the pure hue, let it dry and using a paper punch, punch out nine dots of the colors. These can then be applied to the scale (carefully) with rubber cement. This will show you how a change in value will effect the appearance of a consistent hue.

Project #11
Using the same layout as in Project #9, draw a rectangle 1" by 9" divided into 9 equal sections of 1" squares. The sequence will start with the primary color you didn’t use on project #10 and progress in even steps to its complimentary color.
