This is her comment on yesterday's post, "There's something about the shore in that part of the world that's less about color and all about value. These grays are full-spectrum and beautiful." So it didn't take long to think about working to glaze those full- spectrum grays. Above see the underpainting and the first layer of thin glaze. Seeing the beauty of grays is something Whistler did oh so well. With his thin "sauces" he made beauty and light with gray. So I look to him.... as I so frequently do.
