    I am a middle school art teacher. We are studying color theory. I was thinking about monochromatic landscapes and did a Google Search. I should have just gone to Pinterest first! Great lesson. Maybe I can share pictures when we finish. Thanks for sharing!

Example is computer generated & takes 10 min. but can be done in paint: tints and shades of one color, complement for the sky, then a silhouette drawn in black Sharpie or cut black paper.

A great way to teach value. A white highlight that gradually tints into a color as it expands from the subject.

Monochromatic by Tricia Fuglestad. This student-made movie introduces monochromatic painting as a one-color painting with tints and shades of that one color to create contrast.
