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.
