The value of value studies

Hello. this is a quick pastel I completed using two small value studies on location this am. Instead of taking all the paints and pastels on to the site I often do small value sketches . I try to make short notes to myself on specific areas of the compostition.. I do alot more of these little studies as the temperature outside gets colder. about 14x 17 inches ..pastel on paper. Tom
