I love value! I love how it creates form and contour. Take a look at the flat line drawing of the following petal, then look at the painted petal. It could have been interpreted in many different ways but this one was just plain fun to paint. We are using Cool Grey 50% as a basecoat to control the intensity of Raspberry, which is *quite* bright by itself, and to add more interest we are allowing a lot of the Grey to show through. This, to me, is the fun part of painting.
