It is important that your painting contains the full range of tonal values ( light, medium and dark). For that reason it is strongly recommended that you do a small series of studies on paper with either paint or coloured pencils.
Here are some issuses to consider -
* Cool colours receed - have your warm colours at the front of your painting.
* The distance is always a bit misty - lighten and/or grey some colours at the back of the painting.
* Ensure your painting is well balanced. Dark tones at the top of the painting will make it look top heavy.

Each individual painting will be different, however you should consider if some of the colours from one part of the painting need to be carried through to another section of the painting to tie the painting together with colour.

Planning a painting can be a help as you know exactly what you're going to do, but it could also inhibit spontaneity. At first, you have to decide the subject of painting. Then you need to decide what the best format for the support is; whether it should be landscape or portrait, or perhaps square. Choosing right colour for painting is most important. It can add immensely to the mood of a painting. Working with a limited range of colours can contribute to a sense of unity in a painting and great a sense of identity or unity between paintings.
