Understanding Proportion and Value are essential in our training as artists. Painting in Gray tones (Grisaille) helps us understand value structure in paintings. Without color we can focus on rendering form and the play of light and shade. Instructor Dominique Medici will start with a demo and break down the process of painting into clear and consecutive steps. Students will have the choice of working in black and white or umber and white.
