Over the past few days I've been trying to work on improving the values in my paintings. My attempt yesterday had good color but the values were lacking. Today the aim was to do a value sketch of the same scene and get a better pattern of lights and darks. As it turned out I just painted the whole thing again which wasn't the aim. On the plus side the values are definitely better.
Now it's up on the screen I think I need to focus in more and keep the scenes smaller and simpler. Too much is going on for me to really get to grips with those tricky midvalues.
