....following on from colour charts  I'm posting an initial value sketch (castle view  again) with value scale  charts below inspired by
Maggie Latham's next tuorial on values  "Exploring colour in watercolour"

...in the next week I hope to paint lots more plein air studies /thumbnails ..it will help me get to grips with challenging  hillside views here .

You're a good "pupil", and your work is good,too. I'll try to do these charts like you, and as Maggie tutorials.

There is a real beautiful soft smoky effect achieved in this painting. Wonderful!
Happy Plein-Air Painting!

Uno de los problemas fundamentales en pintura son los valores del cuadro. Considero muy importante tomarse el tiempo de estudiarlo haciendo escalas de valor en grises y en color.
Saludos!
