I hope these two paintings have inspired you to try painting in black and white for a while . Love to hear how it works for you and if I can help you in any way just leave a comment or email me. Well, a new Sketchbook Skool sketchbookskool.com Session starts next week so I am off to hit the streets with my sketchbook and fountain pens and of course a tiny watercolor kit. See you next time . Enjoy this beautiful day !

New York City Value Studies
Hi, I thought I would share some value studies with you today that I did using peach black tubed watercolor and my brush. These are currently hanging on my living room wall and they remind me how much can be said with so little. Charles Sovek always said , " it takes 3 values to turn an object " I have learned so much by painting and focusing on values that now I almost do it automatically. You can be assured if a painting works in black and white it will work in color. I have also been spending time studying the work of Ted Kautzky and his wonderful value sketches.
