Friday Studio Play

I took today off work to wait for the delivery guys with a new clothes washer, and also the dryer vent cleaners. The dryer vent guys got here early - yeah! But the delivery service gave the dreaded "4 hour delivery window". In between, I watched a couple painting videos and then got into the studio.

I've been using black/white paint for working on my brush work in oils. Last week, I painted the scene below using 9 steps of values:

I commented on my Facebook page that I felt I could probably use fewer steps, so today I tried five steps:
 Yeah, that was hard. But then again, the value changes in my subject of peaches was more difficult to decipher.

Not great, but a good exercise!
