Drawing Exercise

This was a drawing from class earlier tonight.  Unfortunately, I missed the point of the exercise which was to create a hierarchy of values, as a study for a smaller poster painting that we did the 2nd half of class.  

This is the poster study.  I can't take credit for it, as my instructor did a generous paint-over to correct the numerous mistakes.  I've noticed I have a bad habit of mixing my colors too intense, overall.  But I'm hoping to train my eyes to perceive what's happening in nature more accurately.  Painting is a humbling exercise.  It certainly shows you how much you actually don't know.  But it's still a very enjoyable and rewarding journey so far.
