Grisaille Oil Painting Technique

I filmed this late one night so you may need to turn the volume up to hear me…. just a suggestion : ) The subject for the first painting is the awesomely amazingly superly talented Butch Walker. You can also hear his song “Mixtape” playing during the pictures. The last two paintings are my reproductions of Sandro Botticelli’s “Portrait of a Young Woman” and Jan Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring.” Hope you guys enjoyed. Thanks for watching!
