This is done with a two color tonal palette. Just a little extra red and a few darks for the lowlights.

I don't get a chance to paint this kind of subject from life very often. So this was fun.

These were painted with colors that show warm light.

This was a challenge to draw because of the foreshortened boat. The colors are contrast of warm and cool.

This time I concentrate on value. There is really no color statement.

This scene has very flat light. Typical of an overcast day.

This simple still life is an exercise in edge control.

The photo reference showed this as an overcast afternoon but as I painted it turned into a rainy evening.

The photo reference for this one was in black and white, so I had to create a cool color scheme.
