This is a finished piece on Coquille Board. I wanted to challenge myself with something fairly complex and with a strong light source.
After I finish a few pieces like this, my next challenge will be to do something simple! And to try and get looser with my color work. Trying to stretch in both directions, but in both cases trying to stay focused on atmosphere. (amongst other things!)

Truly amazing. No colour and yet, nothing is lost.

Thank you so much, Dolores! It was somewhat of an experiment. I might like to do this piece in color someday too - it would interesting to compare the two.

Wonderful tonal range and warm texture! Nice sense of the light spilling in.

Emilie Boon said...

Beautiful tones of gray... wonderful piece–definitely atmospheric!

This is wonderful Marion! Very rich looking.
I'm going to copy you. No, seriously. :~) I've been looking for just the 'right' texture too, and totally forgot about Coquille board.

Love it!

Thank you so much Anni, Emilie and Paula!
Hey, Paula! I thought I was copying you. Yeah, seriously, I wondered if you might be interested in Coquille Board and would love to see what you do with it!
