A monthly project painting at WatercolorWorkshop is to paint a la Andrew Wyeth in just a sepia or a monotone. I had the perfect photo for this - taken at Shaker Village in Kentucky. Simple, interesting, and lots of textures.
And just to torture myself, I decided to try it all in drybrush. We'll see how long I can carry that on! ha ha
Started with a simple sketch...
and then slowly, slowly adding pigment. It's not really a monotone but very muted color that I think will work for the project challenge, too. What do you think? Have I bitten off more than I can chew?
