Oil study #56

A black and white value study. It's my best attempt at suggesting fabric. I'm starting to have a better feel for the medium, but still have to work hard at seeing my values.

Black and white studies are my favorites, and I really like this one.

Very nice. A good thing to do is take a photo in color of your painting and look at it in black and white on your photo program on the computer. You can see how your values are shaping up. Of course if you are like me, you get excited and forget the photo until the end. You can also photo your palette if you pre mix your colors. I mix as I go, so that doesn't work too well.
