Value study

As promised here is the Value Lily...Done with Payne's gray in various concentrations.  The lightest values have the most water mixed in and the darkest value are almost pure Payne's just slightly watered down.  In the background where you see the stalks I wiped the damp pigment away with a paper towel and then restated the sharp edges once the paper was dry.

What a good idea. Do you do these always, or sometimes, or almost never? I keep trying to discipline myself to do such things, but haven't yet gotten the habit. And in any case I usually do the study with pencil or marker, which I think limits what I learn from the exercise. I appreciate your idea of doing the study in w/c. I will try it. I promise!
