Monochromatic Drawing

Monochrome art is generally produced using a single color, though tonal variations are created through shades or tints, and sometimes textures.
Analogous color ‘families’ appear adjacent to one another on the color wheel, i.e. blue, blue-green, and green, or orange, orange-yellow, and yellow. Because there is little contrast between analogous hues, the artist must rely much more on value and saturation.
Students will experiment with a narrow range of color choices (no more than four separate hues), and will be challenged to produce the same work of art in two forms: one monochromatic, and the other using analogous colors.
Class participants will be limited to 8.
