Big Bogey fan here! Absolutely your tonal paintings will carry over into your coloured paintings later on. You are improving your ability to see the values clearly which in turn makes creating dimension easier no matter the colour.  O0

Thank you everyone and praise from dennis much appreciated.
Here are some more practice pieces the one of the elephant was a black and white photo where he was stretching out his trunk the camera angle was slightly off. So i put him reaching into a stream /river , i kept the sky dark as in the photo i also double and treble checked the trunk to make sure it was correct as the camera angle makes it seem over long.

Thank you val.
This little guys photo has been with me a long time. I think i got it from paint my photo , thats where most of my pictures come from. The challenge for this little one was depicting his unruly, very fine platinum hair. Plus its my first colour acrylic portrait. I use system3 daler and rowney  paint.
