Still Life Still Life: Painting in Monochrome/Grisaille

DATE: August 16 & 17, 2014
TIME: 10 - 12:30 PM, 1:30 - 4 PM
COST: $195

Grisaille - Grisaille: a French term for a finished painting done in monochrome: generally in shades of black, brown or gray. 

This workshop focuses on drawing and painting directly from life. During the workshop, the instructor teaches and demonstrates each step of the painting process from beginning to end. Students learn about the importance of values in representational art. "Color gets the credit, but values do the work"!

We will start with a thumbnail of your composition. When we determine it is right we will paint/sketch the first layer with a thin color lay in. After this stage, students gradually paint with thicker layers in black and white thus creating a value painting in monochrome. This can be loose or very finished and it can be beautiful!

Each day, the instructor reinforces the material with a demonstration to give the students a more thorough understanding of the process and techniques involved. All levels are welcome.

Cary Jurriaans is a contemporary realist based in Whidbey Island, WA. She paints still life and portrait. View her PSG Artist Profile.
