So, lately, I have been observing and advising students and painting friends at critiques [when asked!], that values are so important, and the colors used are not necessarily as important, when I finally "listened" to myself, and took another look at my little poppy paintings. Yuck! No value change at all. I took a dab of dioxizine purple and deepened the values around my poppy, which, I think helped a lot. What do you think?
