Gray Morning

Gray Morning, 6 x 8

The last post or two I've worked with keeping my value range tighter than usual. I'm working on gray days, and it's hard for me, because I'm most often drawn to darks in paintings. It definitely creates a mood to keep the values more closely tied to each other, whether it's a gray day or bright or nearly dark.....all good times to reduce your value range.

Beautiful painting. I agree, gray is so important in a painting. Your work reflects that and is a reminder to me, to use it more often. Thank you for sharing.
