So, how are you? Things with me are pretty busy especially with school. I am having a pretty good year so far and have the best students! I just posted some of their artwork on my classroom blog, PHS ARTROOM if you would like to check it out.
A couple of weeks ago (yes it has been that long!) I posted about a technique called grisaille. The technique involves in creating a complete black and white value underpainting and then glazing color on top. Here is my painting that I started with color added to it now. It is not done by any means but i wanted to show you how the value underpainting really comes through underneath the applications of color.
Here are the two paintings:
Before: Black and White Underpainting
After: With Acrylic Color On Top
I still need to add a ton to this painting but I sometimes like to leave it looking unfinished when i show my students so they can kind of get an idea of my process.
Anyways! Hope you have a lovely October weekend! The husband and I are going out to buy some wonderful fall-inspired decorations today. I am all about mums, pumpkins and decorative squash and berries. So excited to pretend to be Martha Stewart today:) Have a great day!
