Very nice work, Valw!   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

I'm really looking forward to seeing where Nolan takes us on this one.   :yippee:

I wish I could be doing this, but I'm on the homeward stretch in the drawing course and I want to keep going.

Valweb and Musika - I missed your lamps before. They are looking really good - all of them.
I'm glad i didn't paint a bigger one now - i ran out of time to do my little one again. I'm posting to show what can happen if your grisaille is painted with open acrylics. These are usually good because they dry slowly. In this case, though I painted the lamp a week ago, the paint re-activated and i picked up bits of it even though i tried not to by painting very lightly. It greyed out some of the colour and greened my pale yellow a bit. I think it messed up the transparency a bit too. It was worth doing it just to learn about it.

Karen, in spite of the difficulties you had with the open acrylics, your painting turned out beautiful.   :clap: :clap:

You always amaze me!

Sorry you were not happy with your painting :(  I guess it was good that you didn't start with a large canvas. lol.  What shows on the post looks fine.  The good news is that you learned everything that you were supposed to in the lesson, and if you want you can do another.  You always do such nice work, so I'm confident that you could easily pull this one off if you want to-and it would be great!

it must have been terribly frustrating to have that happen to you Karen  :crazy2:

What I suggest you do now is just turn this into a regular painting by painting in the details and shadings, then tackle another grisaille and glazing project later with regular acrylics or oils

Yeah Claude French is also big in Louisiana. You have to speak French (modified Cajun version). But we get our point across.  I lived in Louisiana 30 years, Raised my family there. They grew up speaking French (was required in school there) and cajun.  It is a GREAT language.
