Shades Of Gray

6" x 12"
Oil on Board
I had fun with this one.  There is a painting site that publishes a new challenge to painters every week.  Artists can write in and give challenge ideas and this was a good one.  Your entire painting had to be done in rectangles.  It could be any subject matter, palette or brushwork.
As most artists know, there is no pure gray in color.  A gray is always "grayish" meaning it leans to blue or green or any other color.  To the naked eye (mine at least) the background gray here is a pretty mid value, soft gray.  The "grays" in the vase are more obvious in their color and have either more blue or more green in each of the rectangles.
Relying on photography and different computer monitors can raise some issues when it comes to viewing color online.  My website explains that I always allow returns of my artwork if for any reason you are not thrilled with your purchase!
