value study, oil, 8 x 10
I've been primarily a pastel artist for many years, but I work in oil, too. However, color mixing in oil has always been my challenge. Every once in awhile I find that I need to take a step back and look at my subject matter in values only. After all, if you don't get the values right, you'll just make a mess with color. Today I thought it was time for a monochromatic value study.
