"The School Supplies with Yeti on Top" by Ally Ferguson

Artist/ Designer:

My goal for this project was to experiment with grisaille painting. I learned how to create contrast with the black and white paint by putting on the dark first. We used turpentine to thin out the paint as well as oil. I learned that this paint takes a long time to finish drying and how thick the paint is when you lay it on the canvas. When you put paint down and rub turputine on it it will dissolve the paint and disappear. I liked this project but I don't think I made my painting look very realistic.
