Gray Study of Two Cups

With these I tried something different: I premixed my grays.  I made the darkest gray I could with my red, yellow and blue.  Then, using white, I mixed five incrementally lighter shades and started painting. I tried to limit myself to my six choices.  It's a good exercise in really seeing and comparing values.  Since doing these studies, I find myself staring at scenes or objects and imagining how I would paint them in grays.
