Study in Umber, 6x6





I love the challenges posted on Daily Paintworks. This was fun, basically a three-value study done in burnt umber. I painted it at our weekly Pieces of 8 painting group, and I only brought my tube of burnt umber. I had some spare time to do another piece, but no paint. This presented another challenge. I used my friend Donna's palette to paint "Tired Pear" which I posted previous to this one. Using someone else's paints is a very interesting experience, since we all use different colors on our palettes. It was also two different approaches to the same subject.
