Re: Values and edges....?

IMO, making edges less hard and contrasty (as opposed to distinct 'stay inside/outside the lines' coloring) is a step that takes you out of the beginner level. Even when the delineation between two adjacent objects or colors really is a hard edge, painting it with reduced contrast (using more or less of a subtractive or additive midway color for the transition) is often visually nicer.
Color is the most important element in painting - except for everything else
