To check tonal values in your painting it is easy to take a phone snap and convert it to Black and White. This is especially handy for landscapes with depth/perspective to check that the distant tones ARE distant. For this image it helped me see that the structure was forming how I wanted it to.
Checking tonal values is easier these days 🙂 I used to take a photo, get it printed, then photocopy it in black and white.
