all about value

i am really enjoying my color theory class.  
we had to choose a black and white portrait and then choose one color.  once we had the color, we had to paint the portrait using that one color (using different values - light/dark).
i have always loved audrey hepburn and purple 
just felt right for this one...

i am using gouache (pronounced gwash) paints - an opaque watercolor...
now i want to take a painting class!
