Value Study

"Trieste - value study"
6” x 6” (15.2 cm x 15.2cm)
Acrylic on Canvas Panel

I rendered a photo I took last summer in Italy using only 4 values. Lots of squinting and comparing. The fun was to try to paint shapes instead of details. The other cool part was mixing my own black and grays. Fun fun with this value challenge by the DPW.
