Monochromatic Sketch - Waterford

A monochromatic painting of a brick house

Waterford House. 8"x6" Oil on linen. 2014

This sketch was done with Gamblin's Torrit Gray (2008 version, I think) and white.  I wanted to see how this building looked in paint, but I found the actual colors a bit overwhelming.

I premixed the paint into five piles, each a different values and laid the paint down very quickly.
