Painting noted as GRISAILLE were painted using the grisaille method. In grisaille the picture is painted in shades of gray, then layers of translucent color are glazed on. The light shines through the color, hits the monochrome layer and is reflected back to the eye. This gives a great depth to the painting. It is a 2-day or more process. This method was used by many of the old masters.
