This is a monochrome study done in acrylics using only Payne's Grey and white paint on a canvas panel. It is 11 X 14. I am also working on a color painting of a different view of this creek. The idea behind a monochrome (one color) study is to learn how the values (light/dark/medium) help you show 3 dimensions on a 2 dimensional surface. The rain has finally stopped today and I'm going to varnish this one and frame it.
I won an "Artist of the Month" certificate on Monday for my small painting Red Rock Canyon panorama. That will get to hang in a public place this month (Bentley Commons). I'll be bringing it there later today.
