While working on skin tones, I freed myself once in a while by using monochromatic scales and this blue study is my favorite of them all so far.

I love this - I have a thing for aspens anyway but this is a really unusual representation.

Shades of Colour OR Coloured Shades?

This is fun!

I thought I would start to try and follow the Monthly themes. November is colour so thought this might suit the theme.

Hi Carla

Thanks for your compliments on my shades of colour and trembling aspen paintings.  I appreciate it.

I just love this, the design is just stunning

, PLEASE do some more, it is absolutely wonderful, dark and somber yet light and playful at the same time. 

Hi Daryll

Thank you so much for your kinds words about my painting.  I definitely will do more.  I really enjoy working on black canvas and iridescents. Linda
