    Colorless Painting - A study in Light and shadow.

    I was playing around with the brush, and had my color all the way to white, fully loaded, and I noticed that I could create a painting that had no color, yet still had an image because of the light/shadow on the canvas. I am curious what people can do with this concept of no color and using only a heavy brush or brushes create a painting that has enough visual dark/light to be recognizable. I have uplaoaded a test wheelbarrow just for an example.

    Unfortunately, I have not found a way to put the picture in there, only as an attachement.

    A varation of this, pick any for the canvas, use the color picker to pick that color up and use only that color. A mono painting. You may use any tool you like, but this is about using texture to get light/shadows to show up and create a painting from it.

    fyi: to get the picture to show in the forum (instead of an attachment), you need to resize the image so the longest side is no more than 800 pixels.

    Interesting. I guess when i originally posted this I was thinking about the texture, not so much the color. Any color as long as it was the only color. I was prompted by another posting where someone had layed down a very thick layer of paint and then used an eraser to make "potholes" in the paint.

    Good start. I can see the tree.
