and here is the result of 20 minutes or so, scumbling it up to add variation (it worked better than I thought it would)..

So this 2nd version has much more detail..I liked the first but find this much more appealing. I don't have the book so for sure don't grasp the whole concept but thought about your snow statement and tried my hand at creating that look..maybe too much I dunno, for me it added depth to the image.

so weird how we are impacted by level of contrast. I would say my image is foggier, perhaps feels colder. Yours feels warmer, slushier, and the snow much heavier - a feeling of winter's end, spring right around the corner.

Ok, I’m bravely marching on though I haven’t a clue what I’m doing. I’m trying Painter, Photoshop, Procreate, and plain old paper and a remnant of a black pastel to see what I can do. So far, few of them resemble the target enough to post or draw conclusions from but this exercise is making me more aware of tonalities, which is surely a good thing.

This review published in Vision Science some years ago on “Lightness,Brightness, and Transparency” provides (IMCO) any discussion on the broad concept of “tonality” with several, often sorely needed more objective “handles” to grab onto when scrambling through discussions on “tonality” and “tonal relationships”.
I found this review to be quite...er...lucid and eminently useful in considering more specific aspects of tonality and hope it might be found helpful in the context of Carlson’s theories and concepts under current consideration.

Edit:

I mean’t to add that back in the day when pastel landscape painting was among my creative efforts I learned the utility of a really dark yellow Wrattan filter (can’t remember its number). It was useful to effectively remove hues from a scene, allowing more objective consideration of the arrangements and relationships of the scene’s tonal spectrum; it was of great utility in preparation of a grizzaile (sp) “under painting) of a scene as guidance to specific color selections re: relative luminance and reflectance.

I think you need to go fetch your paints out of storage and help us with this thing!

I added a bit more to this Monhegan sketch - tones and possibly contrast. I'm still exploring which medium is gonna work for me since I know less than nothing about sketching or painting with any of them. Didn't remember what brush I used the first time so the brushwork doesn't match, but at least I'm trying here...

someday we will have awesome charcoal brushes. I'm glad you played more with it.
