I've been realizing lately that when people critique my work, one of the most common things I hear is that I need to push my values more. So I've been doing some black and white studies in acrylics, and I think it seems to be helping me a bit, but I still don't feel like it's transitioning into my color work.
Is there any advice or resources anyone can give me on color value? Should I start trying to paint over my B&W studies in color? Is there a book or previous thread on the topic that I've missed?
