 Medium and Dark Values  

• Predominantly medium and dark values are used, minimizing or leaving out light values

Artists might choose to emphasize medium and dark values in order to achieve a somber tone, a sense of mystery, the presence of danger, a haunted air, or a pensive mood. Exclusive use of medium and dark values might also be simply an accurate depiction of certain lighting conditions.
