Every workshop is an individual section.
About Today’s workshop – Grisaille
Grisaille underpainting is a painting technique in which a composition is constructed completely in tones of grey. It is often used for underpainting, since it establishes light values underneath transparent glazes. There are multiple approaches to making an underpainting. A Grisaille is the simplest form, done with just black and white. Other forms include Verdaccio (done with shades of green), Brunaille (shades of brown). Using a grisaille makes it easy to have true darks in your painting.
This event is limited to a maximum of 10 people per session to ensure a calm atmosphere and optimal guidance.
