This is my contribution to this week's DPW's Change The Color Challenge posted by Carol Marine.
Carol said: "I have always heard that if you are accurate with value you can really play around with color and still have the image "read" as 3-dimensional."
I did a value study first, and then painted on top of that, making sure each color matched the value underneath it( in most places)...some background value was changed a bit.

7 They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”


  1. Love your interpretation Dean! I've always admired your mastery of color.

  2. Nice work, Dean! I remember having "melmac" dishes in our house when I was a kid.

  3. Oh so nice. Love the tomato.

  4. I can feel the process behind this effort, lovely to see the colors go one on top of the other so perfectly.

  5. Beautifully painted, Dean!! Wonderful colors!!
