Color Theory Workshop Part III: Grisaille Painting, Skin Tones and Glazing with Water-based Oils - SUNDAY 7/15

Now that we have established a firm foundation, we are ready to move on to more complicated subjects. You will learn more about values, and why they are important. You will learn the difference between value and intensity, and more formal instruction on how to create works in grey scale.

For the day, we will work predominately on a grisaille painting (French for Grey). This underpainting was a way for old masters to render gorgeous imagery with large tonal ranges, often impersonating the qualities of stone sculpture.

According to Merriam Webster, the definition of grisaille is “A decoration in tones of a single color and especially gray designed to produce a three-dimensional effect.”

In this workshop, the subject matter will be yourself. You will spend the first half of the class creating a self portraits rendered all in greyscale. The second half of the class will include a crash course in skin tones, and a tutorial in the art of glazing. I will provide you will waterbed oils to share. There is a slightly higher cost for this workshop to cover materials.

  • Saturday July 14, 9am to 4pm (one hour lunch break)

  • Sunday July 15, 9am to 4pm (one hour lunch break)
