Tonal Paintings

GS 20140317 062-e

This is a new series of historical paintings! I am doing them in black and white with sepia glazes. I really like how the tonalist approach makes them feel so Ancient. My Artstic thought was that a retro painting done impressionisticly can make a great statement about Art itself. The time impressionism was first imagined was the same time photography was invented. To people in that era, reality was a black and white photo. By doing a painting that at first glance looks like a photo, I am asking the old question in a new way, What is Art?
