This is an image of my painting, Dock Pilings, and the image in gray scale (values). This painting is also on display at my gallery exhibit. This painting highlights several points. The dock pilings are painted realistically. My cropping of the pilings imparts an abstract image. The 4 pilings are cylindrical in form. The light is coming from the left side. In prior posts, I wrote about modeling cylindrical forms. The modeling from light, middle tone to form shadow is gradation and not abrupt. I used contrast in color hues; blue and orange. These colors are complements and enhance each other. This enhancement of hues is most evident in the light and middle tone areas of the pilings. The reflections of the pilings in the water are darker closer to the pilings. Reflections in water are also vertical as seen in my painting.
