Do not fail, as you go on, to draw something every day, for no matter how little it is, it will be well worth while, and it will do you a world of good."

Grisaille:  A complete composition painted in shades of gray in order to establish the values from the lightest lights to the darkest darks.  The word is derived from the French word gris, meaning grayMaking a grisaille underpainting is very much like drawing with paint, showing the connection between drawing and painting and the values of color.  

Monochromatic Schemes Value and intensity variations (tints, shades and tones) derived from a single color.
