griailles and what I have learned
I have also learned that, for me, warm is better. I have experimented with mixtures of burnt sienna, transparent earth red, alizarin crimson permanent, and transparent brown oxide. Who knows what will be next? Each painting demands a slightly different mixture....it's like cooking. Do you ever put the same spices in each dish? Nope.
Ideas come first, but yet the grisaille must be allowed to speak. Make a "mistake"...who knows that could be the most wonderful change. Follow your heart and your brain. They lead differently and they will take turns if you value both;-D
