Quest: How to paint Grisaille. This is a video created for my questers to see how amazing these skills can be in art. Click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WrUl...
Optional Mini Quest : Take the Color Test. Sometimes in art our brains just don't know how to see. The more you look at color the more you can see the shades and hues even when they are subtle. It is why artist never retire. We paint until the end. Also color blindness can affect how you paint BUT it should never stop you from painting. http://www.xrite.com/hue-test
Explain the difference between tonalist work and colorist work and how that is super useful to the everyday artist.
What is a grayscale it is a range of gray shades from white to black, as used in a monochrome display or printout.
Can monochromatic be a color ? Yes it can you can create Scales featuring a color.
Hue, Tint, Tone and Shade
You might have noticed that black and white are not colors on the color wheel are they being slighted or is there a plan
Tints are created when you add white to any hue on the color wheel. This will lighten the hue and is useful in things like atmospheric perspective
Tones are created when you add both black and white to a hue. Grey has been added and or A complimentary color. Like Sienna to a blue
Shades are created when only black is added to a hue. This results in a rich deeper colors
You will need
How limiting your palette can create WILD art. Grayscale painting tutorial is not just for digital art in fact artists are the OG of the monochromatic world. Monochromatic painting can teach artists powerful lessons about how light and color can create shapes in a composition. Painting in various shades of a single color can inform and improve your more advanced, color-rich work by helping you identify contrast versus relying on hue to build a piece. Seeing color like drawing is a skill!!
My favorite Brush is Goldilocks or Simply Simmons bright #10 Extra Firm Filament
