Painting Techniques: Grisaille and Glazing
with Adrian Martinez

Gain new insights into the Renaissance masters and how they achieved their color magic! Adrian Martinez offers each artist (beginners to professionals) five weeks of technical analysis along with real-time demonstrations vividly explaining the three essential stages of Renaissance oil painting. Beginning with a classic still life set up, each artist will complete a basic drawing and then move, when satisfied, to a grey toned under-painting in oil. After finishing this “grisaille”, many transparent and colorful oil glazes are added. Adrian will guide your progress, taking into account each artist’s personal background and individual taste.
