    Thanks Pat I thought U would understand as I prefer Crit to Plaudits As it gaves U a third

    Eye to things U don't See Your self as if they say it look like Shit ( scuse) it make U

    Look again at something U thought was Great thats Why I like Caesar's

    Work I don't Know how he Does it but it the Little touches he put in that lifts it from a

    Mundane work to make it worth looking at and Capt'n Mac well he kept me going

    When I only done Bus Sketches But of late He hasn't been as Crit as I would Like

    as Its Crit that makes U improve ok CIAO IVAYA CON DIOS SLAINTE POZDRAWSKI

    That was quite a challenge Pat and I agree with Mr.Ploos about trying it in sepia. BTW the dog is a nice touch.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    Monochrome paintings do have their charme indeed. masses and volumes and lights are in evidence often better than when rich colors are on place.
    In the past many or most masterpieces started that way and there's still today a case for the method called, from French, grisaille, i.e. to put color of the right tonal level on the monochome base. Similarly, during renaissance they used a base painted as a monochrome with the so called verdaccio, a dull green.
    You didn't really follow that procedure I guess, anyway You got a fine result, although You sensibly departed from expressing exactly the same "content, feelings and mood" than the monochrome ....but that's just natural.
