Elaine’s #18 – Monochrome in Prussian Blue.



I’m afraid my scanner cropped off part of this painting on both sides, I did this on 11 x 15 size and my scanner bed is max 8 1/2 x 11 (standard copy paper size)… so it looks a bit odd. What I liked on this was the sparkle I got using dry brush on the water… and I liked the clouds (hard to see on the scan so trust me the clouds are good) I’m not happy with the house across the water, looks odd, and I do not like the dolphin reflections… they are too dark and not broken enough as they would be on wind blown water. You can’t see it due to the cropping, but I was not happy with my attempts to add the overhanging tree branches… doesn’t really look like anything. All in all it was an interesting exercise that I enjoyed doing.

    I had to laugh. This happy – not happy – discussion is the conversation I have with myself about everything I do. I like it. It is very peaceful and has almost an Asian feel. Great job.

    I noticed the Asian feel right away too Elaine. The various lights and darks are nicely highlighted with the one color. –love that Prussian Blue! I find using one or two colors to be a satisfying challenge — thanks for reminding me — I need to get to work!

    Much of my work has been this too and I never stop learning. Thanks visit my blog.

      This blog has fallen into the black hole of the internet… there was a group of 3 or 4 people who posted here, and then nobody posted any more. So this is the most recent post.
