Tonalist Landscape

6"x6" oil on board   SOLD!
I am experimenting with a Tonalist pallette, limiting myself to a minimum of color pigment, Staying in a mid value range. Values are important here, saying very little while conveying a mood. For an extreme color enthusiast it is not easy to not lob in some orange and red! It's restraint, something I need to learn and practice. This is the first of many I plan to paint.

Hi Vicki,

Thankyou so much! I'm so pleased you like it! I'm working up another today, it's so new for me but fun after schloping on all the color!
