This is A-State Connections on KASU.  I’m Johnathan Reaves. This is the weekly segment called “A-State Connections and Create@State: Making Connections That Count”.  In this interview, Assistant Professor of Art History Dr. Katherine Baker talks about how she and her students have been bringing art practices of the past to present day.  I talked with Dr. Baker and student Madeline McMahan.  Dr. Baker starts the interview with telling about the difference between regular history and art history. McMahan also talks about her painting.  Click on the Listen button for the entire interview.  

When I paint with oils, I use a traditional method called a grisaille. In this method, the drawing is outlined in ink and then covered in a layer of brown paint. After the brown underpainting, a black and white layer, referred to as a dead layer is applied. I generally forego a dead layer, which is more similar to the Venetian practice of underpainting and is sometimes called a brunaille.
