CDC #440 – Monochromatic Masters!

Monochromatic is a color scheme based on only one, single color tint. It uses only variations (shades) of a single hue, made by altering the saturation and brightness of the base color. Black and white colors are always added, as they in fact are the brightest, resp. the darkest shade of the color Posted above is a piece I made years ago using  monochromatic principles.

Your challenge this week is to create a piece of Monochromatic art using HM3. The subject matter is wide open.

You can enter as many times as you wish.

Due to my work schedule over the next two weeks there will be no prize for the winning entry.

    This is a beautiful example of gray-scale. Not sure it qualifies as monochromatic however.

    Gray is a neutral, or achromatic, meaning without colour.
