Back to doing smaller paintings to take to the Ohio Art Market and replace the ones I've sold.
Used this idea from artist, Patti Mollica, http://newyorkpainter.blogspot.com. I happened to see it off on the side while she was doing one of her YouTube demos. I took an 8x10 canvas panel and painted the three value shades of gray using acrylic paint. I can use this many times until I fill it up. Wonderful idea for checking values. Peggi Kroll Roberts has videos for value exercises too that I often do.
