Stages of grisaille for my latest piece. As a monochrome preparatory stage, the challenge is in ignoring all the sparkly color I'm seeing and really focus in on the light/dark values. And since it's partially a Carravagio exercise, the contrast is pretty high.
Due to demos and fill-ins, I actually only had 2 sessions to do this. I think it's a pretty solid start to paint over. #oilpainting #oiloncanvas #grisaille #lifepainting #academicpainting #awesomemodel
