Medium: Oil on canvas

Date of creation: 2016

Description: Child portrait using old technique of "Grisaille" and Glazing.

The portrait was executed on canvas from a charcoal drawing, and a base painting in grisaille (black and white). Several cumulative layers of oil paint were applied, that allow to replicate the soft tonalities of skin tones and luminous effects,

which result in a very realistic image of the person portrayed. Each new layer of paint can only be applied when the lower one is dry. The picture took two months (non-consecutive) to be finalized.
