Topic:  Color versus Value and Contrast

Points of Interest:
Define Color: (Hue) are basic colors that make up the rainbow.  They represent light wavelengths.  In a way, color is defined as hue, saturation and tonal value.  

Define Value: Graduations of light and dark.  All colors have an inherent value.  

Define Contrast: Difference in light and dark.  Or light vs dark.

Saturation or the Chroma has to do with the intensity of the hue.  

What is the grisaille method?
