from black and white to color

This is a larger pastel created from a recent larger black and white pastel.   The color was created tin response to our constant rain we are experiencing right now. It has rained non-stop for 3 days and will rain for many more.
 I have found that my black and whites have more mood and I try to find that same mood with color.
A challenge.

Sorry I don't comment very often, but I do enjoy reading your posts and am glad you are still blogging. You already know this, but a limited color palette and strong value contrasts work for me in wtercolor when trying to create mood. I too love working in monochrome (watercolor), and I feel more comfortable there than in color sometimes. Sorry to hear about rain....we had enough of that in england, and it's great to be back in FLorida with sun and rain that dries up almost instantly.

You are right Maggie...I just keep working at it. Enjoy the Florida warm.
