Just a quick post today. I just got back today from class in which I finished the monochromatic underpainting for the painting in the last post. (I missed last week due to coming home from work with a raging headache.)
Several people have commented that I should leave it monocrhomatic. It is tempting but I'm so sure it will look even better in color that I spent the last few minutes I had in class and painted in the sky and some of the dark recesses in the trees. So what do you think, does it stand alone as a monochromatic painting?
