Learn to paint grisaille portrait studies, a great technique to help you progress from drawing to painting, with artist James Razko.

A Grisaille is a painting executed entirely in monochrome and originated as an underpainting technique for Old Master Paintings.

This workshop is a great opportunity for you to learn a new approach designed to develop your painting in an organised way by working with only one colour and making one decision at a time. The tonal principles and paint handling skills you’ll learn will give your portrait painting a solid foundation and produce a grisaille study, an attractive technique in its own right.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to handle paint while applying tonal principles and represent form convincingly.
