It's the end of the Color Palette Challenge. I've really enjoyed doing this with Judy this year and I wanted to make the last challenge a really interesting one where you could do whatever you want.....almost! You get to pick your favorite color and select several values of that color. In other words, the theme is:
Monochromatic color schemes use one hue (or color) and all of the variation in the composition is from value. Artist Marilyn Wall uses monochromatic schemes for a lot of her fiber portraits. Monochromatic compositions, like Marilyn’s portraits, are like black and white photo in that they are more timeless. The viewer focuses on the line and shading details and is unable to focus on color. The trick is to have enough value differences to keep the composition interesting. A portrait with 8 value steps allows you to include more detail than one with 4 value steps.
Here's an examples.
This fabric is monochromatic. It's alll red but has varying shades of red.
This fabric is not because it has orange in it.
Got it? You pick the color and make something monochromatic.
