Sharp Line for Chiaroscuro

Posted on June 21, 2017

I’m about to start on the grisaille, but here’s how it looks now before I get going. I like how it already has a sharp contrast between light and dark – one way to accentuate that is to paint the line along the profile of the face, shoulder, and arm quite sharply, and the other side of the body in shadow with a soft, blurred line.
