Work I Progress - in Austria

Painting Works in Progress -

Painting on holiday in my mum-in-law's artelier. The paintings behind are her paintings :)

This is the first stage. I render the figures in black and white before adding the colour. This method of painting is called “grisaille” method. Refer to my earlier article : Grisaille Painting To Create Realism and Drama . I find this the least fun part of the work cos it requires a bit of accuracy and the paintings are quite tight.

Human figures are painted bald and clothe-less during this stage. That is how I can achieve a 3 dimensional effect, and also allows the hair and clothes to render more realistic.
