The drawing part done, Anne move on to developing the painting's values. The darkest areas are going to attract the eye so they are kept near the focal point. She aims for four values: dark, light, and two middle tones. Now the canvas is pretty much covered with some degree of burnt sienna. The warmth of this color will glow through in the finished painting. One way to study an initial lay in is to squint down and see the major shapes, lines, and the dark/light areas. Does it feel pleasing? Are there obstructions or glaring errors in the lines or subject?
