Here is a new idea.... playing with value to make mood. Matthew, the owner of the gallery where I have my work, saw my grisailles on line and loved them as finished works. (go figure;-) He wanted to have some before I put paint on them. To me they are unfinished so I am playing with a new idea- just black pastel on white paper. I also decide to work on arches instead of Uart because I am rubbing alot to make the values and I want to have some fingers left. (I am still missing part of my right, middle finger nail due to rubbing on uart sanded paper)
Using just value to express emotional content is a challenge. Here is my first try.
