Shades of Gray

I really thought I'd get to paint a picture or two last week while visiting my dad in NC, but it just never happened, alas. So it's been a while since I've posted here. But finally I got back to Art Class tonight.

Christina had an interesting still life set up which was quite monochromatic, primarily shades of gray, black and white. Some of the students were doing it just with charcoal, but I'm just too much of a colorist to enjoy that, LOL.

So my challenge to myself was to try to achieve the muted tones of the actual setup, but without using a single white, gray or black pastel! So that's what I did here - no white, gray or black was actually harmed in the creation of this picture. :-)
