Big Shadows

Al
One of the things that I notice most in a painting is the contrast. I try to make sure that I show some of 3 vaues ( light, medium and dark) in my painting. I have learned that it is better to not have the values in equal proportions- some paintings will be mostly light with a few dark and medium values thrown in; the same goes for opposite combinations.
Even with all the rules, sometimes intuition takes over.
