From Value Sketch To Painting

In the last entry, I posted two sketches of my cove.  Here is the painting I created using one of them.

The value sketch is the place to figure out where your light, midtone, and dark areas will be.  It makes decisions easier about what to paint first, (light areas), second, (midtones) and last (dark areas and accent details.)  Don't confuse a value sketch with a drawing.  Drawings focus mainly on lines, not shapes of lights, midtones and darks.
