Grisaille Stage Completed







I just finished the grisaille (under painting) stage of my triptych painting. In the next stage I will add glazes of color. Hopefully I will finish the paintings by the end of next week. I want to have them ready to be reproduced for printing and available for sale by Easter Sunday.
On Easter Sunday I am scheduled to paint another sermon painting. So I want to also paint a smaller scale version of that painting for reproduction, and have at least the Easter design and the triptych design available for purchase. In spite of this lousy economy, I am really trying to make an effort to have at least a little income from my art.

I cant wait to see the color version! Such detail and values!
How long is your sermon painting? Have you ever done a video of one? I would love to see it.

Shelly, thanks.

Trish, the sermon paintings take about 30 minutes to paint. I really have to hustle! Some day I might take a video of the process. However, for this next one I was thinking of having my wife take stills of the process. I am going to see how I can set up a slideshow on blogger.
