Eight in the bag 6"x6" oil on canvas

When painting the shadows be sure you have the right value to start.  Here I started with a small amount of what I thought was the value and checked it, but it was too dark.   I kept adding yellow and white to lighten until it was the right value.   Now within that shadow area are numerous values and hues of that color.   Making a flat shadow color just won't do.
