Three studies in sepia
Karen uses around 16 colours and a lot of Titanium white. She focuses most of her painting on colour value 7 and doesn't diverge too much from that. She's an amazing colourist. Her paintings have this luminous quality.
So I set myself this task of painting 3 white objects - keeping the colour restricted to sepia tones - I also chose a neutral background.
Looking at these, I definitely could still go darker with my shadows.
