Monochromatic color exercise

Watercolor and Acrylic on paper 12" x 16" I've got a new book to teach me about color theory and color choices and this is one of the first exercises,which teaches about color value. The idea is to paint two versions of the same landscape in a monochromatic color scheme, one using a warm color and the other using a cool color. I think I favor the warm color scheme.
