Laying in values

Once the composition of the painting was done, in charcoal on canvas,  Arthur began to lay in the values.  Lights to dark.  We'll then build up on the painting creating layers of color.....however keeping to a strict color palette.  I want him to loosen up with the act of painting and discover the possibilities of color mixingThe composition is tricky but he seems to enjoy the challenge.
