Re: Oil Painting In Cowboy Boots 101

Mike- welcome to the forum. Hopefully, Jim56 will check in. You did a great job on the monochromatic portion of the exercise. I can kind of see what you were saying about a possible lack of midtones on apple. But it is well done! If you are brand new, you should be VERY happy

Maria- hi. Hopefully Jim56 will check in and see the new interest in this thread. But the idea in the beginning was to use 3 primary type colors that are transparent colors, as to show how they can make some nice, rich darks. And to do a monochromatic painting to learn values and using paper towel to wipe away certain areas to get the values correct. Hopefully, we can help you gain back your confidence! Best to read back through the entire thread.
