"McCloud, California, near Mt. Shasta, is a charming lumber town that has seen rebirth recently. The Stoney Brook Inn sits at the north end of main street and is sheltered by surrounding conifers and broadleaf trees. It made a delightful subject." --- SFG
Since the front of the inn is in shadow, these tones are still part of the darks of the painting. Also, I've established the value of the cast shadow at the lower right as one of the darks.
When I teach, I always emphasize separation of light and shadow. If you establish a roadmap of the darks from the start, it is much easier to see where they fall. Remember, nothing in light can be as dark as the lightest area in shadow AND nothing in shadow can be as light as the darkest area in light.
