1st glaze, Portrait painting tutorial, grisaille technique, how to paint

This is a video showing the first glaze over this grisaille underpainting, in real time. Hopefully it will give an idea of the process I would go through if I wanted to glaze over a portrait, and so my hope is that it could be used by someone studying this technique as a portrait painting tutorial.

I would appreciate any feedback people may have about these videos. I am trying to be as authentic as possible with them so people can see the challenge of painting a portrait warts and all!

There is a description of how I painted the grisaille on my blog at mattharveyart.com

Here I used a more painterly approach with some looser brushwork, being consistent with that approach throughout all the glazes to come.
