Colorful Greys

When painting a white object like a sand dollar you might think black and white paint out of the tube will work. Introducing color into a painting without much color can give some fun and interesting results. I’m not saying this was an easy exercise. I was quite challenged by all the variety of greys in the sand dollar. I don’t think I will look at painting a white object the same ever again. But that’s the fun of it!

    I love all of the color you found in this white sand dollar, Heather. I think pastel neutrals are my favorite colors; they are so soft and soothing. Your painting is beautiful!
