GREGORY GREFENSTETTE

Painter Portraitist Artist

The technique involves painting in shades of white. One places a glob of white paint on the palette, and has some diluting medium. Starting from the brightest parts of the painting, you apply the white and when there is little left on the brush, you draw it over the less bright regions, or use a diluted form of the white to make the "shadows". Once the whole painting is down in black and white, then colors are applied. I am not sure how, haven't learned that part yet.
