WIP Peaceful Thoughts

Just started this painting and did something I've never done before -- a grisaille. It's not really a grisaille but rather a brunaille because it's done in burnt umber rather than shades of gray. It's now ready for the first layer of color. I found it to be a fabulous exercise in focusing on values. As the saying goes, "value does all the work, color gets all the credit." It's 9"x12" on Ampersand GessoBord.
