Working with three values

This week in art class we discussed the three values and starting with those strong backbones. You have often read that I wondered if my darks were dark enough and lights, light enough. Not a problem here. This is the D Street Bridge in Petaluma, a scene many of us know so well. Now I need to paint it again, altering my palette, closing in on the beautiful flow of the river.
