value does the work

After spending six days with Richard McKinley, my annual visit (to the doctor of pastels) I am left once again pondering the most important phrase he shares. "Value does the work and color gets the glory." If you can't make it read in just value it will never work. Plus, I think that the mood of the painting should work in b/w. This is a study from my favorite slough.
