This original grisaille oil painting of a reclining female nude on panel by myself, Sarah F Burns, measures 11 inches x 6 inches and is ready for framing. Painted on birch panel, this little painting will last generations. It is currently being carefully stored in my studio and can be shipped immediately.

I've been on a grisaille kick lately. Grisaille means a painting in monochrome - especially in shades of gray. It can be used for under-paintings with the intent of covering the grey tones with color, or for studies or as a strategy for a finished painting in it's own right. I like grisaille for two purposes; for study and for the beauty and allure that tones have. I like the abstract patterns that arise and to use of the values for bringing out the form. This particular piece is one of my favorites. I like the composition.

I attend Life Drawing sessions weekly, studying the figure from life is an age old tradition for artists, for students and professionals alike. Studying figures unclothed is vital to understanding human form and when a sense of character and spark of life is captured, the drawings and paintings become really lovely pieces of art.
