In an earlier post, Eric Talmant shared with us his experiment in gray scaling (Grisaille), which is a technique preferred by painters like Greg DiFranco and Penny Meyer. I am no critic because I am only a beginner when it comes to painting flats, but I know what I like, and I thought Eric’s effort paid off well—not that it is necessarily better than previous works, but I thought it looked as good. Check out the previous post here.
Below you will find the same piece, titled, “Omar,” with a base, along with his most recent work, “Achilles and Hector.”
They don’t look “flat” do they.
