This is the first layer of the newest painting. It is the exact opposite of the way I have always painted and I am struggling with applying my paint thinly. This layer is called grisialle pronounced "grizz- EYE" . I will be applying several layers of these tones to create the various values of the painting. Then I will be glazing thin layers of color over the values. I have to wait for each layer to dry before I can lay on the next. Like I said .. VERY different for me and really fun to be learning a whole new approach to painting. Too early to tell if I will ever paint this way again... stay tuned!
ps ... I have no clue how this is going to turn out!
