Monochromatic Sugar

Monochromatic Sugar
Oil on Panel
Raw Umber and Titanium White.

This is pretty much the mate to the previous painting. I got a little more into the drapery this time. I am not sure if that is a good thing or not. I am enjoying the monochromatic look. It gives me a chance to play with values and brush strokes. I haven't quite got it figured out how the transparency is working with this palette. I still want to play a bit and see what I can do with it. In some places where it looks warmest, there is just a very thin layer of raw umber wiped off. Where it looks coolest, there is titanium white mixed in the umber. It is an interesting effect that I did not take into consideration before I started painting.

I guess this means, I need to do another one.
