Why start in greyscale?

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth | Portrait Art -

I’m not all that con­fi­dent when com­bin­ing colours in a spe­cific pal­ette. On the other hand I love greyscale, black and white: it’s enough to cre­ate a good range of con­trast and ex­press my ideas. I be­lieve that a good greyscale paint­ing gives you the flex­i­bil­ity to make changes – and if you work in the game or film in­dus­try then changes are in­evitable! So this ap­proach en­ables me to ex­per­i­ment with colours as much an I want once the fi­nal de­sign is fixed. Put an­other way, once I’m happy with con­trast be­tween el­e­ments, I’ll start play­ing with colours.
