Painting Simple Values

I've decided to take my painting skills back to their origin - back when I knew nothing. I hope to complete a simple painting each week (I miss painting!).  
I'm not sure what I'll do with these paintings yet; but I will scan the step-by-step progress of each, in case I decide to include them in a book or as curriculum for teaching online, interactive workshops on Drawspace. For now, I'm having fun!

This monochromatic painting is rendered with only Titanium White and Raw Umber. Skills include creating several different values with paint (painting a traditional value scale is boring!), as well as creating the illusion of atmospheric perspective.
