Painting the portrait in grisaille
Fall of light

Saturday 20th of February 2021 10.00 - 15.00

Sunday 21st of February 2021 10.00 - 15.00

 

By using a monochrome palette, participants will excercise only the most important aspects of painting, values, drawing and the fall of light. This means that we will investigate how the light acts when it hits a face in a dark invironment, as it describes the skin and the anatomy underneath.

That is why this workshop is without the use of colour. This tecnique is called grissaille.

There will be demonstrations and lectures by Nina and of course we will paint from a life model.

demonstrations and lectures. We will paint small objects

with a clear situation of light.

like to paint or use the one, that are ready in the atelier.
