Grisaille Painting









Welcome to the Official Grisaille Connection


 Linda Coulter is internationally known for grisaille painting (a French word that means "gray tones") over which pure color glazes are applied with a special paint that allows natural sunlight to participate in the finished design to produce an "inner glow".


The term "inner glow" was originally coined by the Old Masters of the Renaissance who were glass painters and painters of illuminated manuscripts. Their secrets were prized and cherished.

Linda Coulter has skillfully blended these ancient art techniques with today's paints and mediums to produce radiant works of art that will capture your heart, inspire your imagination and make you happy.    Learn more about GrisailleLearn more about Pure Color Glazes.

Linda Coulter’s Foundation Seminar features how to “see” color through artist eyes, and recognize the gentle color nuances that can make or break your painted designs.  Learn how to eliminate muddy color and jazz up your painted designs with beautiful colors of nature and radiant sunlit effects.

At this beginner-easy seminar, you’ll learn Color Theory, Color Mixing and Color matching.   Each student can bring a few of her/his  favorite bottles of DecoArt Americana or Plaid FolkArt paints so Linda can teach you her EASY way to match them perfectly using PrimaFlo liquid acrylics.

Bring samples of wall paper or fabrics to learn how to match the color with Linda’s EASY method.   

The theme of this seminar is “Spring and Summer Flowers and Garden Treasures”.

Each student chooses how many projects he or she wants to paint during the weekend from the 16 beautiful designs available. Projects are small, quick and easy for “party style” painting fun!

Each student receives a FREE Introductory Set of PrimaFlo acrylic paints, and a FREE Introductory Set of w/Oils (water mixable oil colors).

This seminar will be taught at Shipshewana, Indiana, in May … and York, Pennsylvania in September … Coulter Art Cottage (central Illinois) in August.  Other locations include New England and Florida this fall.

Come join the fun and learn Linda Coulter’s EASY way to handle color successfully.
