90% Value Check

This pastel painting will be 22 x 17 inches. I'm working an extra inch all the way to give me the option of moving it slightly left, right, up or down - however it looks best in the mat.

I'm painting from a gray scale reference photo and am 90% done but the colors in the painting are too busy so I took a photo of the painting and turned it into a gray scale to check the value range. Value looks good to me but I'll lighten the horizon at the right and do something about the busy colors in the foreground (which of course, you can't see in this photo). The last 5% will be detail.
