Hey Gail – Hope all is well with you and you are enjoying the winter. Thanks for re-submitting this assignment. The corrections that I suggested for you to do really did help bring the painting into technical compilance . So Gail since you are one of my advanced students I dont want to put you thru the hassle of re doing anything that you need to re-submitt. However I do want to point out a couple of things that need to be corrected and just trust you to do it on your own. So getting back to the value system you did really well until you got to the buildings. They are too dark. If you notice the front section of fence and large dead tree are all the same value. So all you need to do is create a soft medium gray /wash and slightly wash it over the buildings to lighten them by about two values. This will push them back further into the painting creating more depth. One more thing. Its always important to try and repeat some of the sky tones some where else in the painting. My suggestion is put some of the warmer tones as highlights on the large dead tree, and or maybe the buildings and perhaps in the water. Just be carefull not to over do it. Other than that this turned out to be a really nice painting painting.
