There is a saying, "Black in sunlight is lighter than white in shadow" and that's the principle I used in painting this Dalmatian.
This week's challenge is to paint your light colors in shadow darker than your dark colors in the light. Yes, this hurts my brain too.
To keep it straight in my painting, I made a simple four color chart.

Feel free to use my photo or one of your own. A more straightforward example would be to paint a white object on a sheet of black paper that's illuminated from the side.
It helps to squint to get your values right and don't worry if it takes a few tries as it did me.
Please be sure to follow the spirit and the letter of the challenge.
For example, each submission must be painted after the challenge is posted.
