Torrit Gray and Progress

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.

 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.
