Monochromatic paintings are such a great way to explore tonal relationships without worrying about color. This painting of Maggie was completed with black white and Torrit Gray. The photograph I used as a reference was taken by Steven Johnson. www.stevendavidjohnson.com
Another painting in progress, this time working with a limited palette of Cad red, yellow Ochre, Payne's grey and white. Still a lot to to on this painting, but I love the shadows and the expression.
