(38) Choo-Choo
6 x 8, oil
I love these old wooden toys. My goal for this low-key painting was the opposite of what I have done the last two days. I wanted to keep the lightest light no lighter than 5, and the darkest dark no darker than 8 (with 1 being white and 10 being black). I typically do not choose to paint low-key paintings, so it was a good learning exercise.
