Shades of grey

Grisaille 001

Because I’d never done anything in grisaille before, I did a couple of test pieces.  I did them as capital letters so I turn them into scrolls later. Grisaille is fascinating and I want to explore the technique a lot more.  It’s all done with ink which is diluted to get the lightest colors.  It’s pretty painstaking and I found I needed to really know what I wanted the end look to be before I started.  There is no turning back.
