    Thanks! I can't wait to give what you've said a try! Although I had always "knew" how contrast worked and was aware of the compression phenomenon, seeing it explained and in action was something completely different.

    I'll try to remember a Bauhaus teacher who published great book on "theory of form" and second is "theory of color". Great read.
    He explained very well about contrast, so maybe that can help.

    edit: Ok, i haave remembered, it is Johannes Itten, here is amazon link. If you have time and will find these books. They will explain allot

    Thanks for the great demonstration, this is one of those concepts that I've heard about often, but it is helpful to see it explained visually.

    Another tip, one way to see if a painting has strong contrast is to look at in a low-light setting, which I guess in a way moves it more towards grayscale in our brains.

    Thank you, Jason! You are a great teacher and I learned a lot about contrast in relation to the focal point. I think some artists might feel like they "already know this stuff," but having it demonstrated carries a lot of power. Thanks for taking the time to make this.
