8 x 10 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
I recently was asked to participate in the 7 day Black & White photo challenge on Facebook. The idea was to post B&W photos for 7 days in a row, no people, no explanations. In doing so ,I went thru some of my photo's and just dropped the color out to focus on the beauty of the shapes and the contrasting lights, darks and mid-tones. Some of the photo's in B&W inspired my curiosity to give them a go for painting. This Dahlia was painted using only the black and white photo as a reference.
