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 Grisaille. Learn more about Pure Color Glazes.
