Welcome to my Intro to Monochromatic Painting

This lesson you will be watching over my shoulder during one of my real-life commissioned paintings.

Monochromatic painting refers to a color scheme that is made up of one color in a variety of values and even tones of that same color.  As an example – if you add white to red – you will get a variety of pinks.   If you add black to red – you will get a variety of darker versions of red.  This creates a variety of values of that same color.
