BAROQUE PAINTING: MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUES
Baroque painters typically worked with a limited palette of pigments bound in oil on a colored or tinted ground.
They refer to three specific stages in the development of their paintings; the “inventing” or under-drawing,
the “dead color” a monochrome or pale under-painting and the “working-up” or development of the painting itself.
