Family Story Time 5"x7" oil
This is a value study. It is painting in a light, a medium and a dark value. This is a really important aspect of creating a good composition and painting it in grays is a good exercise for practice. It makes you really see the shapes rather than the "things" or "people." After all, painting is not about things, it is about chemicals arranged on a flat surface that give an illusion. I will go back in and put chemicals over this that give the illusion of lovely color and hopefully it will turn out delightfully! NFS
