|Value study or underpainting for Three Peaches|
Value Study: I did a value study for this painting after reading about this in Carol Marine's book. I find that by doing an underpainting for most of my paintings, I've already been doing this. It is a big help to establish the lights and darks before adding color. As usual, I used burnt umber and mineral spirits.
