Translating Value to Color

Being able to see values while painting in color is extremely important.  Knowing how to go darker in any color should be automatic after lots of exercises.  So don't skip the exercises and the practice.  That's how you get more confident in going from lights to midtones to darks.

Here is a painting which I've converted to black and white to show you the values of colors.  I've again used the alternation approach that I mentioned in the last entry.
