Today's topic was "Vegetable Golem." I screwed up the value families by painting the creature before I added the darker background bits. Initially I had painted it so it was almost a silhouette in a misty fog, but I got kind of bored with that and wanted to paint fiddly bits. So I did, but kept the value range still very compressed. Then I decided I wanted some darker background stuff and that's where it went wrong. Still it was a lot of fun to paint, and I may try another this evening.
