Keeping Watch, 6 x 8

This is an exercise we did in Carol Marine's workshop.  We started by painting in the darks, then literally wiped paint away with a paper towel where the medium and light tones were.  It's a terrific exercise to keep you thinking about values.  I keep wanting to paint this one, to "finish" it, but I'm hanging onto it in this form--it's a valuable teacher.

A great lesson AND a beautiful piece. There is something so compelling about the burnished sepia tones... there is nothing unfinished about it.
