Grey seems to be in the air lately and on my paint palette. I walked into a bathroom where I hoped to paint a mural. The tile was grey and white and the term grisaille came to mind. Grisaille is the French word for grey and is used to describe monochrome paintings often painted in grey tones. I admire the old grey works in history and hoped to get the opportunity try my hand at one.
The spoonbill is the most prominent element in the painting. I’m so glad the homeowners commissioned me for the job. The mural was actually painted right around the corner from my own home. I got to try a new technique while getting to know my very nice neighbors!
