Class 2: Value (Homework)

The other part of the class was to choose 3 primary colors on our palette and paint the same picture again, using just those 3 colors.  I didn't get to that in class, but I gave it a try at home.  I admit there were a couple of times I MAY have accidentally dipped my brush in an extra color, but it's mainly just 3 colors. I was also following along with a tutorial in a watercolor book for a lot of this:

Next, here's the value study which didn't come out as well as the one in class. I used burnt sienna and just couldn't get it dark enough to provide a real nice contrast.
