How do I find out about value patterns?

Value Pattern

The variation of light and dark values without the use of color. The patterns and their arrangements give clues to the focal point in a piece as well as the contrasts. If you take a piece containing color and reduce the piece to grays, you can better see the value patterns involved in the work.
