Last Day working on Blue Eyes

If you wonder whether you have the tones correct and the image has the right values you can covert it to a black and white image to check. This is another way to begin a painting. Take the image and convert it to black and white before you begin to draw it out.  Use the black and white photo to paint your image using your own colours but sticking to the values for a successful painting.
