So what? By looking at the painting through both colors of plexiglass, I get a sense of how the values are working, or not working. I decided that this painting had adequate darks and mid-tones, but was lacking the lightest lights.

There is a saying that I hear often among artists:
"Value does the work and color gets the credit."
Not a bad idea to check the values. I do.
