I think they call it monocolour, for obvious reasons really.

Very kind words Vonny. Cheers
That's amazing! Excellent work.
Great work, wish I was as talented as you, then id be a true photographer.
Hey...just checked out your website. You've got some good stuff on there!
OK... how'd you do it. That is gorgeous.... my fav so far.
BTW - just got an acrylic paint set for my birthday - got any pointers?
Thanks Tammy. Never used acrylics before. Come to think of it i never used watercolour before either so sorry i can't help you much.
Acrylic paint is an opaque medium whereas Watercolour is transparrent. In other words, acrylic should be easier to work with than watercolour. You don't have to work from light to dark as with watercolour.
Start off by painting something simple like a small landscape. Paint several 'doodles' so you become more confident.

Most inportantly enjoy youreself. Everything you do will be unique to you.
This is beautiful!! Like a sepia toned B&W.
Nice idea, and somehow I think it was probably much harder to do this one and get the shading right, than it would have been to do this exact landscape using color.
You make it look easy.
Yep, thats definately a keeper you got there, its gorgeous!
Acylic paint can be used just like watercolor, simply add water to thin it. The substance will then become transparent.
Artists like Chuck Close uses acylic to paint his subjects.
