When I read the prompt for today I only read the first part Monochromatic so I painted 2 monochromatic paintings of pine cones. It wasn't until I started posting that I saw the word Mood. I guess that my mood would be peaceful. Out in nature picking up pine cones.
My first painting I sketched it first and then painted it.
For my second painting I thought I would try something different to try and force myself to draw what I saw not just what I artistically interpreted. So looking at a photo of a pine cone, I sketched and then painted it piece by piece. It was a lot more time consuming and I don't think it looked any better than my first one. So oh well.
