Beautiful series . I like how you use your monochromes . And I am happy to see you back with your new works. :)
Thanks, anisja : ) I’m happy to be back and am catching up!
I’m enjoying your monochrome series. As I try more conversions from color digital shots to black and white, I’m understanding how difficult it is to see tonal values. Your painting are a great help.
Thank you. And I totally agree with you. I am turning my photos into grayscale then using that to paint from and trying to simplify shapes. I agree that it is very difficult to see color as tones. I always feel that I see the composition better in black and white than in color.
Love the form Anita! Brilliant!
Thank you, Adrian!
fabulous painting this one. Agree about the use of monochrome – and the brush strokes. Beautiful combination, and a great effect.
thank you very much, cheesewolf. I’m taking a bit of a break from the monochromes, but they have been well received and I will return to them soon, I think.
