Gloria J Zucaro's "Enzo in Monotone"

8"H x 10"W Original Oil on Reused Canvas Board

Today I am showing my challenge entry for The Daily Paintworks.  The theme for this week is offered by Christine Parker and is called "The Monochromatic Challenge".  I painted my grandson Enzo from a photo that was taken a couple of years ago.  He is now almost 5 years old so his face has thinned out and he now looks more boyish rather than like a toddler.  When I mixed all my old piles of paint from last week, I came out with different values of blues. I used a board that I had previously painted on from a challenge last year.  See below.  In the photo above I notice some "red" showing on one cheek that does not show up in real life.


  1. wow the monochrome painting is fabulous Gloria and loving the colours in the still life. Hugs Annette x

    1. Thank you, Annette. The still life was from a Daily Paintworks challenge in 2011. We were to see how few strokes we could use to paint our still life!

  2. You captured a lot with such a minimal palette. I really like the piece. I also like the idea of reusing something you might not have been happy with. I do like the colors in the original work though.
