Jumping Youngs-Grisaille Stage 1


I marked lightest, darkest and mid-point value/tone ranges on my canvas and then proceeded to paint the grisaille. I have much work to do, but I'm happy to get some real shapes blocked in. This painting has much more detail than the Granpa Genoa and therefore it takes more time. As you see, I did not get the entire canvas covered in the grisaille and the imprimatura (in orange) is showing through.

Amazing, Chris! I always thought I'd like to learn how to paint; however, I never fully appreciated how much WORK it is! So many steps! You have a patience I lack. Blessings to you as you use your gift!
