Continued practice. Graded wash dark to light to dark with arbitrary leftover grays. Value study using leftover colors on top of a practice graded wash of arbitrary grays. Repeating a scene, testing pre-wetting the paper, leaving whites, working wet into wet with sequential light to dark washes.
Continued practice. Painting from a photo, doing a value study, testing pre-wetting both sides of the paper for one sketch and then one side for another. Leaving whites, then laying sequential light to dark washes, working wet into wet. Sensing the timing and density of wash applications, painting all in one go. Making mistakes.
