Using Shade

What is shade?

This past week I decided to do a painting with strictly one hue and shade. I am not going to lie...




In my

Dragon by Maribel Feliciano

I presented the challenge of just using one hue and a shade and silly me decided to use the color green. I figured green would be a cool color for a dragon, but goodness, when you start adding that black into the green it gets dark real quick!

I was hoping to get a nice wide range of greens, but without white it was near impossible for me to get the look I wanted.

In the end, I was still satisfied with how it came out, but if I could give one advice, it would be to use a lighter color like yellow for your art.

Tell me how yours came out! I would love to see what you came up with. Did you have the same problems I did?

Don't forget to watch my video for the details on this challenge :)
