Because I’m doing a Grisaille piece which is painted with ink, I need to know exactly where my dark and light areas will be. With ink, I can’t go back and paint over areas to make them lighter, I can only make things darker.
So, I’ve gone back to my layout and penciled in shaded areas so I have something to follow as I start painting.
Still having trouble uploading photos (and probably will until I get a new computer): Here’s a link at the shaded pencil version. Note that I started shading the lion, but I can’t do that on the actual scroll other than a little bit for definition as the lion on the device needs to be argent.
