Adding Color to a Three Step Value Study

Cottages at Twilight
5x6" oil 

This is the final version of the three step value exercise 
and also my 'Nocturne" painting for Girls Just Wanna Paint
I included the grayscale version as well. 
If you're having trouble with values and who doesn't, try this.

Your final version is awesome, Mary. Meanwhile, I'm still visiting memories and things I've seen or read in the past. This time, the grayscale piece reminds me of the movie, "I Remember Mama." Not sure why but there you have it. I think I'm a nut job.

This is so interesting to see how the values make a difference in the effect of the piece. Thanks for showing that, and it's a beautifully painted piece. I admire your dedication to your art.
