Challenge painting

Moonlight Solitude, 8 x 10", acrylic on canvasboard , NFS

This painting is my entry for an online challenge. The idea was to create a painting with soft edges, limited palette, limited tonal ranges (a la Whistler's Noctures). Our palette was limited to white, greys, one yellow and one blue. I used titanium white, payne's grey, yellow ochre, cerulean blue.

I found the challenge very difficult - my work is usually all about color and contrast - but I felt like I learned a lot, so it was a good experience.
