Re: Demo #2 graphite grissaile

What an amazing painting Derek. The depth in that shirt alone is mind boggling. The pinks added are brilliant and still look natural. It still amazes me that you can sketch and shade on gesso. It just seems to get all mucked up when I try.

Re: Demo #2 graphite grissaile

He is not moving and yet he really seems to have life! Something about this painting makes it seem so real. Some kind of energy emanates from it.

Re: Demo #2 graphite grissaile

Thanks Marion: I think that is what glazing can do. It creates a glow that you can't get with direct painting.

Re: Demo #2 graphite grissaile

Derek, I was just pointed to your demos by Blue...

I posted an experiment in acrylic, and he thought your glazing technique would be of interest to me...
He was dead on, and I shall try this on my next black and white. I cant draw for nutz, I work freehand, but my ctreative juices are working on this... Thanks for the inspiration.
