Tonal Scale and Value Keys

I was looking at an old Colour and Design work-book of mine from the mid ’80s and found this page on Tonal Scale and Value Keys. Still good theory and not a bad little painting exercise with gouache. I think it may have come from a Maitland Graves colour and design book. A couple of the hand-written notes read: Major because it has both ends of the scale involved, Minor because it has one end of the scale involved.

The exercise comes from these Maitland Graves books.

Two books by Maitland Graves on a timber floor. One titled Color Fundamentals, the other titled The Art of Colour and Design.
