More on Monet's Tree
Here's the tree from yesterday, colored to a point. I've darkened the darkest darks. I am really happy with the grisaille. I definitely will do that again.
I think I may stop here on this one, it is only an exercise. My drawing wasn't really strong enough to warrant further work on this. But, as for trying the grisaille, it was a success. As for learning how Monet did trees (at least in the early years), it was a partial success.
* Monet is more subtle and thoughtful than I initially gave him credit for.
* He was, even at this early stage, entranced by light and it's effects.
* I still don't know how to execute a successful tree!
Off to a busy day, have a good weekend everyone!
