GRISAILLE OIL PORTRAIT
Oil painting / Portrait
Oil grisaille (monochrome portrait) is the best way to get familiar with oil painting techniques and develop a general understanding of color mixing. The grisaille portrait serves as an important link in the transition to a full-color oil portrait. A monochrome portrait will help develop the skills to depict volume, depth and proportions of the head, and will also help hone the technique of multi-layered work. In this course, I will also show you how to create soft tonal transitions on the skin, which will undoubtedly come in handy for painting subsequent oil portraits.
