A new project has been announced in the WetCanvas! project system!

Title: One Color Value Study
Project Leader: Nandie
Relative Difficulty: Irrelevant
Type Restrictions: Painting
Medium: Watercolor paints
Subject: Not Applicable
Days open for signups: Always
Maximum participants allowed: Unlimited

Description:

Lately I've been inspired by the amazing paintings done by some artists in the WaterColor forum, using a broad range of values of only one color. Some do this as an "underpainting" to establish light, dark & shaded areas before laying on color, but some of these underpaintings are so detailed they would stand alone as works of art even without the other colors added.

I would like to challenge you to pick one color - any color - and paint an entire picture with it. Push the values as far as you can from light to mid-tones to dark without adding any other color.

Oh, and one other thing..... the color should work well with the subject matter (Payne's Grey for a city or winter scene or dark blue for a night-time scene, etc...).

Have fun!

I'm in....this is right up my alley!!

now I have a question though:confused:

does the "one" colour need to be straight from the tube? I am guessing so given the wording of the project. For my underpaintings I use two colours to achieve my purple but is this disqualified from the project?

I'm not going to be disappointed or make a fuss....I just want to get the requirements straight :)

Hi Em,

I guess it would be okay to use a mixed color as your "one color" as long as you mixed a big enough puddle of purple (or whatever) to do the whole painting so that there are no color variations because of inconsistent mixes of color. Know what I mean? A mix for purple might be more blue or more red in a subsequent mix unless you are careful to mix it perfectly every time. That might be hard to do, but go for it if you can!

By the way, Em, would you mind posting a pic here of your angel underpainting so people can get the idea of a "one color" value study? That's what inspired me to start this project. I think (scratch that - I KNOW) you can teach us a lot about how to do this, so please feel free to share your expertise here!

Thanks!!!!

Great idea, Nandie. I've always wanted to try this but never got around to it. Also never signed up for a project before and when I went to have a look at more info on the project and how to sign up, I was signed up before I knew what happened, LOL. Looks like I'd better go looking for a picture and start painting!

Hey Ruth - that one looks like fun!!! Please do upload a bigger image (maybe just crop the statue) for us so we can see the detail.

Em thanks for uploading your angel, it's a great reference. I assume the two colors you mentioned were mixed together to make the purple.

Everybody else, thanks for signing up - this should be both fun and educational!

Mary, I love everything about this, it's so serene. I'm especially taken by the sky, which is so delicate and whispy, and the reflections on the water just sparkle.

What color did you use? Is this Burnt Umber?

Thanks for the encouragement. After seeing Em's, I am a little embarrassed but that's what I'm here to conquer, comparing myself to others instead of accepting where I'm at.

I look forward to learning from others efforts.

This one really caught my attention Andrea-I'm in! I now have 6 projects to work on-great practice for a beginner!
I found myself mulling ideas for color and picture in the wee hours this morning.........should be an interesting day at work :D
I've got this idea based on a verse from a Moody Blues song:

"When the white eagle of the north is flying over head
and the browns, reds and golds of autumn lie in the gutter, dead
remember then the summer birds with wings of fire burning......"

I've got this vision of a picture done in shades of something like a burnt orange........we'll see if I can get it together......
Should be a fun project

Your teacher was WRONG ! Insensitive YOUR work is good No one starts out KNOWING how to apply the art skills they are learned and you show the time you have taken to learn the skill of seeing and eye-hand coordination.

I too was told that I Couldn't -Wouldn't ever amount to anything as an artist/ I wish I could find that teacher now as I had given up drawing until (I failed a typing course mid term and had to fill hours..was put into Art classes) And as they say I wish my friends could see me now.
Even though I have sold many paintings and people ask how did you do that?
I was only a child I didn't paint my sky blue/ the stigma the few words caused is ever present in my mind. Because I am drawn2art
that is what is so good about our home here You receive more pats on the back from people you respect who know the struggles of creating and by doing your skills increase.
YES ! I am Addicted and love it. YES!:clap: :clap:

Please don't ever feel that way. It took me years of hard work to get to the point I'm at and for myself I feel I have a world of knowledge to learn and a world of techniques to accomplish yet. I will never stop learning from others. We are here to learn from each other and I totally rejoice in others progress. Let's learn from each other....ok?

you've done a fine job with the drawing and an excellent job with the values painting!

shame on your teacher!! :mad: :mad: :mad:

that makes me so angry. does he/she have any idea of how that insulting remark made an impression on you?

hands, fingers, feet and toes are THE most difficult body parts for me to draw and paint. I've become better with pracise but they are not easy for me. as a matter of fact this summer I painted a single colour study of feet and toes, MissMouse was kind enough to let me paint her toes self portrait and believe me it was a difficult road to get the drawing correct.

Please do not give up drawing and painting figures because of a stupid comment. If the figure interests you then paint it until you can do it confidently. WE will support you :)

Hi, I'm too chicken to enter this project, but if someone is looking for a subject matter I'm attaching a snap of my beautiful Princess Lila of Shady Lane. She is a ragamuffin, bred of Persian cat. She is white, silver and black, perfect for this study [no, I am not going to do it]. I also have a gray scale, and close up of kitty cat head. She is so beautiful.

I agree with Em. The only thing I would change would be to tone down the light patch at the base of his right upper arm. IMHO this distracts the eye from the important parts of the work.

Hmmmmm...... I know you "ink people" really like your ink (and I love what you do with it) but I think that ink would qualify as another color because it adds black detail, which I would prefer you do with your darkest value of your original color. So sorry, I don't think we should add ink, at least for this project. Hope you don't mind????

attached is the bottom half of the one color study/ information in the progress project area/and on next I had to do two scans

My thoughts on the project was to show the calling of the four /earth- air- fire and water. Also the conjuring of the universe.

This is in the beginning stages and I am experimenting with darknesses as this will be crucial to show the extreme lights.
I have not used mask but I wish I had some for the tiny stars.
No rock salt either but salt might do a belt of stars in the top area. I haven't worked out the water part yet maybe some where on the or flowing off of the world her legs should turn into a tree trunk to show her roots and grasp of the earth the crystal is to have a pentacle encircled by rings similar to infinity.I did want to get some lightning shooting off/ What do you think? I have done less work on the top as you can see very rough. I want to create a mood and I think my blue is to light/not deep enough even at it most intence.

hope this makes sense as I had to scan it in two parts sorry I paint big/ I posted them in the project area but they did not show up here so once again I must have (done it wrong)
hey ain't that a country song? and my theme.

more of a question What kind of surface did you use? you may have said but I could not locate almost looks toned. Any how it gives a warm look to a lonely scene :cool: maybe I need glasses or a new monitor.

7 x 11 arches CP

Here ya go, I did mine :D

I traced the fountain outline otherwise it would have taken me a week! lol I'm REALLY pleased with it - I'm going to frame it and hang it in my bedroom :)

Painted using an initial thick wash of indigo and quin. magenta and drops added to a pot of clean water for varying strength washes. White sparkly bits reserved by wax resist :)

I managed to do one myself, just waiting for my neighbour to scan it for me so I can show it off.

Thanks for your observations Sarah the white space is like fog in the distance looks better in rl as you know I always try and leave white space in all my paintings kind of adds a soft focus spot....

Sarah, Thanks for your postive feedback and encouragement. I still think it would be easier if we had flippers instead of hands.

Ruth, Thanks for your response. Come to think of it, it does look like a china pattern but in fact, the scene is in the Sierra Nevada mountains where I live. Lucky me.

Barb, The tree is a jeffery Pine. Above 9000' they tend to get a little scraggly because of the high winds. The color is quinacridone purple.

Thank Al. I'm done now. LOL

Geof- I took your advice and tone down the bass players arm so hopefully it works better.

LOL, Ruth. I know, i got a number of vampire comments from my family when they saw it. it looks a little better in person, but i must admit, not the best color for a value study. i think blue is probably the best. blue or a nutral color.

Bethany

PS I picked red because i happened to have alot left over on my pallet. not a very artistic reason, i know, LOL.

Thanks Al, lisilk, Tigre, Sundiver.......

I'm happy with this one. I posted it over in the Still Life forum and they pointed out that my lace reflections are a bit too bright and hard-edged, and I agree...... so I'll remember that for next time that the values of a reflection should be a bit lower than the thing it's reflecting...... I think that made sense! LOL!!!

Anyway, it's framed now and on it's way over to my mother for her birthday tomorrow. Thanks for your comments!:)

Thanks, Bethany. I actually used Viridian for it, but I suppose it does look a bit like cyan on the screen.

This monochrome painting lark is definitely good fun, and I'm sure it's a very useful skill building exercise for painters too.

You could probably pm Rod and he could direct you to the proper person to ask, if he can't handle your request himself. Just click on his name where it says "Moderators" and you'll find his profile and the link to send him a pm.

Also, did you know you can easily view all of the pictures for each project in it's own gallery? If you didn't know that, go to the project page for this project (http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/Projects/browse_details.php?proj_id=369) and then choose the link at the bottom that says "Browse the Gallery Exhibit", and *voila* you can see them all and comment on them too! When you make a comment, they show up in this thread, just like magic.:)

I haven't done much watercolor lately but couldn't resist this project.
This was done in sepia. In hindsight I wish I'd done it in sienna so it would be warmer looking.

I just got a commission to do a portrait from a black and white photograph that one of my photographer friends took. He wants a painting done of it in B/W, so it will be a perfect painting to enter in the 1-color project! This will be my first project. I think I'll use sepia. How exciting. Took a look at some of the others posted and they are looking great!
Thanks for the inspiration all.

That's a fine painting of some nice musical instruments, sundiver.

I like the way you've suggested the presence of the guitar strings without painting them in fully. The strings are usually the thing I struggle with most when I try to draw or paint stringed instruments.

I rather like the sepia coolness of it. :cool:

I've wanted to paint this scene for a while, but I thought my photo was awfully monochromatic... Therefore, it was a good candidate for this project!

Call me crazy, but I chose possibly the most unforgiving pigment in all of watercolor: phthalo blue.

I think this is the first time I've ever painted ducks. They were in the reference photo, but I didn't realize it until fairly recently when I scanned the slide and printed it out.

What a sweet innocent work. This is a true quality I can never seem to quit when I am developing I have to over work and often lose the delicateness of the image.
One of my favorite teachers said about a painting one day in a critique "This painting is perfect. There is nothing you could add that would not alter the mood and nothing you could take away that change the image,s mood. I think that is true here.

Thanks Andrea, and thanks also for starting this project. :) It was a challenge but I enjoyed it. I used M. Graham phthalo blue.

Thanks also to Pam, Al, and Rich for your nice comments. Rich, I tried to use a variation on Em's feathering technique for the clouds. I had two brushes handy, one with color and one just damp to soften the edges. I knew there was a real danger of the clouds being hard-edged and did not want that! So thanks also go to Em.

It turned out beautifully Tess!! I'm glad my technique inspired you to create such wonderful clouds.....I tend to avoid clouds because I'm too scared of them!! lol

what I enjoy about this painting is the sense of light coming through the break in the trees over the water. the receding hills are really effective as well.

Here's my One-Color-Value-Study. It was painted on Arches 9"x12" CP 140 lb block.

Particular thanks to Em (Mustcreate) for sharing her techniques on her Angel WIP painting, which I tried to use on this to achieve a "smoothness" on the statue.

This was painted using a reference photo of a statue of St. Anthony that I shot in 1992 in San Antonio, Texas. I was priviledged to visit the actual tomb of St. Anthony in Padua, Italy a couple of years later. Comments? Critique?

Here's MusCreate's description from another post:

"How do you get the wonderful, soft gradations between shadow areas and lighted areas? Do you use a wet brush while the paint is still moist? How do you prevent run-backs if that is how you do it? "

"It's called dry glazing and I use this technique almost exclusively. I apply quite a saturated wash onto dry paper. With a clean wet flat brush (anywhere from a quarter inch to a 2 inch flat) that has been touched to a tissue to remove excess water (to decrease runbacks), I touch the edge of the still wet glaze and draw the paint out for a feathering efect. Usually the glaze needs one or two more passes of the brush (cleaned out and touched to the tissue between strokes) to achieve the smoothness I enjoy.

From this point I watch to see if there are areas inside the glaze and at the edges that need touching up before it dries. A paint loaded brush can be lightly touched to the surface of the glaze to draw out more paint.

Then I watch it while it's drying to again avoid runbacks. If I notice one forming I quickly gauge how wet/dry the glaze is and prepare my flat brush for one or two quick even passes over the entire wash area. A tricky business for sure but after practice it can be accomplished with most glazes.

The touching of the tissue and gauging how wet the flat clean brush needs to be ,according to how wet the wash is, took me awhile to master. Practice and more practice and certainly my share of failures to the pile. But this is the look I was after and it pretty much comes second nature now.

It's difficult for me to explain it and tough for me to take photos of it myself. Maybe I'll ask a friend to take photos while I paint someday and post them as a demo

Let me know if you have any more questions about technique or anything else. I'll do my best to answer them

thanks again!!

em

ps. this technique leaves me with a soggy wet cold tissue in my left hand for most of my painting session!! *ewwwww* I frequently change out the tissues but they are wet again very soon. lol "

Hope this helps you as much as it has me.

Kate this one slipped through the net :(

Cute egg cup! You got good values, and the whole of the right side looks great. The one thing that bothers me is the shadow to the left. Shadows are at their darkest where they originate and fade further away. Still, it's a nicely executed piece :)
