Monochromatic study

Approx 10" by 8"
Oil with a palette knife on canvas

I always find these quick sepia toned studies to be a good exercise in studying values. This was painted from a photo of my mother when she was very young. So cute.

This is lovely! Very different for you but lovely just the same.

Cute indeed! I love when you work from old photos, Ann. I think they are my favorites of your works by far.

Wonderful! I like working from greys then adding color later on my studio work. It really help me get the tonal values better.
