Grisaille Study

This is a homework assignment from the Colored Pencil Class in which we practice the "grisaille" technique. "Grisaille" is French for grey or shadow, and refers typically to a drawing or painting done all in tones of gray. Our assignment was to create a grisaille drawing and then add one color to it.

Colored Pencil Still Life

I am taking a Colored Pencil Class this summer at the art school where I work. The teacher is excellent. I find myself thinking about color all the time. This is the still life I am working on in class.

Mountain Crosses

This is my first attempt at painting with acrylics -- a mysterious landscape.
