Notan painting

So my goal was to use the "notan" - a black and white simplified composition (below) to map out this painting.  It did help, but I'm feeling great resistance to making a light colored pooch dark enough in the shadows.  The original painting looks better than the digital (hah, heard that one before!?)  Maybe it's a warm-cool color issue?? Anyway, pondering the possibilities.  Who says painting is easy?
