Monochrome Landscape

Now for something a little different I met an artist friend on the beach and we painted a landscape.

I stuck with monochrome as I’m still working on drawing with a brush and focusing on the start of a painting. Plus it has been a long time since I’ve done a landscape so I didn’t want color to be an extra factor. Basically I took an easier route.

I was thinking of the drawings by Winslow Homer when I was painting this. I didn’t come close to the beauty that Winslow Homer achieved in his drawings but I do like the concept.
