Color vs. Value

Color vs. Value
Note- Colors have different values and therefore affect image presentation. I am talking here about color vs. achromatic black/white.
 
Value contrast is responsible for delivering image impact, sense of form and distance. However, without color the visual experience might be quite boring, powerful black/white abstracts, a la Motherwell notwithstanding. My recent work on a 9 @ 18"x18" sectional painting gave me a first hand example. At one point I painted negative spaces in a range of greys, thinking to offset and thereby enhance brightly colored positive areas. Technically, it accomplished that but I just didn't love it. The moment I gave in to my emotional need for color, replacing greys with violets and pale blues, I realized a sense of fulfillment, lacking in the greys. 

Conclusion: Value performs the hard functional work. Color provides aesthetic enjoyment.
