acrylics on 8x8 canvas board, about 2 hours
It was harder than I thought; I kept reverting to the "real" colors unconsciously. Even now I see a green strip that should be yellow. But it was a good exercise and I will try it again.

Final, although I'm tempted to fuss with it some more.

It is perfect, Wendy! A nice blend and soft flow from values to color. One thing that helps me the most is to print a copy of the ref on a laser printer that isn't a color printer and only work from that, never looking at the local colors anymore.

Love these colors, Wendy - it just shows when you use the correct values - you can use any color.

Good work on the challenge. It's just more proof that values are more important than accurate color. Like your color choices. It almost makes it a fall scene.

Beautiful, Wendy! I love the distant blues and the complementary oranges. I think the exercise was a success (I did one too, and it is a challenge!).
