pink orchids grisaille
16x20 canvas titled " Pink Orchids". Created for a dear friend, in the Dutch Flemish style, a technique learned from Delmus Phelps. It's has the the toned canvas with the inked drawing, then a burnt umber painting,and a graiselle, or monochrome painting,,,and several color layers until I completed the highlights and details. Thanks Delmus, this method works well for me and really helped me as an artist.
