Northwest Art League Christmas Party!

Jerry Sue and Amy Duval preside over the February Meeting.
We Have a great time at the NWAL Christmas party. This year's was no different. It is, apparently, a tradition to wear the gift wrapping bows. Here is Jenelle Chamberlain wearing her red bow! Linda wearing her two bows. Lucy wears a silver bow, Dorothy adorns Marge with a multicolor bow, and Robin wears a bright green bow! Below, Jo Nan Carr couldn't decide where to put her bow!

Our demo artist this month was :

Gary Hernandez and the Grisaille method of painting. Derived from the French word "gris", meaning "gray", grisaille is the method of painting with only shades of gray to create a 3-dimensional image on a flat surface.

This technique can be applied to portraiture, still life, landscape, sketching and compositional study.

Amy Duval did not have a bow; so, tried different approaches with the wrapper! I kind of like the Nun approach!

Some of Gary's Works.


Gary suggested using the already prepared "Gessobord" to make it easier to begin.

Gary starts the grisaille by laying our a gradation of paints from titanium white thru green umber. Oftetimes they will have upo to 12-17 grades.


Gary was very good at answering questions and explaining his technique.
