London Blue by bensharkey London Blue by bensharkey
"London Blue" (12" x 18") Was an exercise in value for painting class. We had to pick an already existing artwork and we could only use white, black and another chromatic color. I forget who the original was by. I'll find out and submit that information later.

That's beautiful. Did you use a bit of red or other warm color in the lighter blue in the middle? Because it's really popping; I love that.

The only critique I would have (and it's nitpicky) is that the tree on the left is cut off in such a way that it creates a sense of incompletion on the left. Otherwise, great composition, lovely blues.

thanks! I used wax as a varnish so maybe that's how you're picking up on some warm hues. But as far as paint goes, I only used blue and white.

Okay, I came here from your youtube not expecting much but WOW. Why aren't you pursuing painting instead of singing? You are quite good on this medium. Personally I love the atmosphere in this.

Thanks a lot! I'm glad you stopped by. I do sell a lot of these. I love singing, art is just my other passion. :) I'm pursuing both.
