Ever try a monochromatic painting. That is painting with only one hue plus black and white? There are lots of cases where it can be very successful. Still it can be confusing. I did a painting once using mostly blues plus white and black. My friends trying to be helpful, said I needed to add some warm color to the highlights, so I added a little yellow. Still my elderly and very experienced friend said it need more warmth in the highlights. I added still more yellows. In the end, I wish I had left it alone entirely because now it was just a yellow and blue painting that looked strange no matter how you view it.
What do you think?
