We begin with a sketch and a black gesso underpainting, then complete the painting with oils over the underpainting. You will learn many techniques during this fabulous lesson, and create this masterpiece in just one day. This is a brand new class and I will be running it for the first time on Friday 13th July 2012

Underpainting Technique - Grisaille Underpainting

I wanted to show how much depth can be achieved by using a grisaille underpainting. The pronunciation of gisaille is grizz-eye, and basically means an underpainting in a single tone, any colour can be used however, more likely it is shades of grey or brown. All the values are worked out before hand so the artist can concentrate on layering coloured glazes for richness and depth. I really enjoyed doing this piece (the pattern for the bird was from Sherry C Nelson's book "Painting Songbirds", which is a beautiful and inspiring book. This painting was done entirely in acrylics, however the same results can be acheived with oils but you would need to allow the painting to dry between layers.

"Along with other students I spent a very informative weekend with Marion on Portraiture. Despite having a decade or more experience I learnt a lot more about colour mixing, brush technique and good processes to achieve a desired outcome."
