I decided to step out of the box today, break my own rule, and paint something from a photo instead of from life. So today's challenge is painting a gray day, something that I really struggle with because the values are so close.
“To myself I am only a child playing on the beach, while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me”... Isaac Newton
