|Open Grisaille - Oil on Panel 6x8"|
Then I got sucked in and rather than moving onto the color portion of painting, I ended up painting a very developed underpainting or open grisaille. Oh well, it was too much fun to stop. Working from life is so much fun, hard, but fun.
This will give me a chance to mix my paints properly while the first layer dries. I have several shells that I have collected over the years so I plan to do at least on painting alla prima of a seashell....or many indirect seashell paintings.
