Re: Monochromatic No. II

Hi Richard...composition is good, as is the spontaneity - but I'm not sure I like the palette as much as the last one, which was a bit warmer... it doesn't seem to evoke the warmth of the country they were part of...unless I've got that totally wrong, and they were from Iceland!

Wellllll - these are Icelandic sour pears and frozen crunch apple.
You are of course right - the palette is different a tad darker and deeper - Ya gotta go outside the box once in a while! :>)

I'm just having fun and trying some new things,

Re: Monochromatic No. II

Actually the painting in real life is much lighter in tone - my point-shoot-pray camera - I think I forgot to pray!! :>)
I'm going to do a seascape in monocromatic next. Just to see what it presents to the viewer. I will try to make it more sepia oriented.
