I love how you have done this Mia, really lovely.

Really nice sketch Mia, i often use Winsor Blue red shade as a single colour, but i like this........lovely

Really lovely delicate painting

Good sketch Mia

Good composition and monochrome gives this a peaceful feeling Mia. Another colour that works well in monochrome is cobalt blue.

Lovely, Mia.

Nice one Mia, lovely tones 😀

I like the warmth of sepia in a monochrome, this is beautifully done, Mia.

Lovely tonal values of this attractive little landscape Mia.

Thank you all very much for your positive comments. David and Frank, I sometimes also use Indigo or Neutral Tint for monochromes.

I do like the muted feel of the sepia. It's a colour I have not used much. The nearest is probably English Red watercolour which I also like.

Love how you use a single colour Mia, and sepia I think is one of my favourites.....along with your coffee washes! A delightful scene.

Thank you very much Gudrun and Fiona. I always appreciate your positive comments :)
