View & Value Finder for Artists


Now with 3 new features: a ruler printed right on the viewfinder and, for protection from raindrops and paint smears, an optional transparent weather resistant sleeve for the Viewfinder and a laminated grey scale card.

 3 VIEWFINDERS  with composition guides.  En plein air or in the studio, use the grids in the clear windows for layout and positioning. The windows have differing ratios, scaled to match standard-size surfaces & frames, with basic composition quidelines & wide surrounds to isolate  the views. Find the best composition, sketch with greater accuracy, know instantly what standard surface sizes are appropriate.   

VALUE FINDER - Transparent  red filters neutralize color without obscuring details View your subject to guage overall value relationships & identify masses of similar value.  View paintings in progress to spot any "flat area", identify areas where more value contrasts would give added life to your painting.  

2 VALUE SCALES -To isolate & identify the correct value. one is printed right on the viewfinder unit, plus there's a separate laminated grey scale for added flexibility...maybe on your pallette while mixing paints?  

PLUS -  An instruction sheet is included, and the viewfinder has a ruler and lots of useful information printed right on it to help you make composition decisions.  

5" X 11" FOLDED SIZE - just right for one-handed use,  fits easily in most paintboxes.
