Grisaille Painting









Grisaille Painting


Grisaille (pronounced griz-eye) is a painting term that means "gray tones".  This monochrome painting executed in gray tone values ranging from dark to light, transparent to opaque, flat to reflective, and sometimes from warm to cool.


Transparent oil color glazes are then applied over the finished grisaille painting to add personality and excitement to the art work. 

PaintWorks Magazine published Linda's feature story entitled, "Colorless Paintings -The Grisaille Secret."   Therein Linda Coulter explained her reasons for choosing the grisaille art style and how it is based on Renaissance art concepts of the Old Masters of Europe.
