This four hour video describes an approach to portrait painting based on a carefully organized plan involving clear steps from monochromatic underpainting to colored glazes. The first day is devoted to grisaille which establishes form and value and the second day focuses on color which adds life and vitality to the portrait. Artists from Raphael to Ingres would often work in these distinctly delineated stages resulting in paintings with both a radiant glow and strong form definition.
The colors and mediums used in this video are all historical pigments and oils which were found on artists’ palettes as far back as the Renaissance and earlier. Exotic lapis lazuli and authentic vermillion together with mediums containing wax and leaded glass all play a role in creating a portrait which evokes the richness of classical portraiture.
