Determining Values with under painting

 I paint with acrylic paint.  And the subject of under painting?
All my painting start with an under painting.  
I don't do it in the traditional way though.  Well I may not eve know for sure
what the traditional way is because I am not a trained painter.
I under paint all my painting in thin layers of colors
that I will be used in the same colors that will  complete the painting.
Not being an educated painter I'm guessing when I say that
under painting is used to determine if you have you paint value correct.
I never seemed to need to know if it was correct or not because
The Values in my paintings always seem to appear correctly for me anyway.
So hear you go.
