Here is my attempt at the challenge.  Wow, this was really challenging.  :sweat: Photographing it was even more challenging. ;D  I used viridian and alizarin crimson to make my gray.  My painting looks gray but the photo is picking up green in some spots red... anywho...I would have loved to get that beautiful back lit look but after fiddling with this for a long time, this is my best result.  I hope someone else tries this, I would love to see another attempt.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Mary Lou, you have done a great job on a very challenging subject.  I am busy with the drawing and am finding it very, very difficult using one pencil only. I am hoping to find the time, while taking care of my husband, to do the painting challenge.  So hopefully, you may have company.

Great job  :clap: :clap: :clap:
