Still Life with Skull: Oil on panel, 16"x24", 2004



Step one - For this project I was compelled to do the detailed drawing in graphite seen here.  I then transferred the drawing to the panel and began work on the grisaille seen in the next two steps.


Steps two and three - working on a gessoed panel, the background is painted in first, then work begins on the foreground and objects


Step four, the completed grisaille - ready for glazes and scumbles


study for upcoming glazes
