A good way to discern the value and color of an area you are painting is by comparing it to colors and values positioned near it. Get into the habit of doing a lot of comparing and you will soon find that it becomes so much easier to nail it the first try.
Using your peripheral vision can also help you to see values and colors positioned close together. Because your peripheral vision is not as sharp, you will not be distracted by sharp detail and will instead, be able to compare color and value without distractions.
