Grisaille (grɪʼzaɪ, -ʼzeɪl; French: gris, grey, French pronunciation: /ɡʁi.zaj/) is a term for painting executed entirely in monochrome, usually in shades of grey or brown, particularly used in decoration to represent objects in relief. Some grisailles, in fact, include a slightly wider colour range, like the Andrea del Sarto fresco, here illustrated.
A grisaille may be executed for its own sake as a decoration, as
underpainting for an oil painting (in preparation for glazing layers of colour over it), or as a model for an engraver to work from. "Rubens and his school sometimes use monochrome techniques in sketching compositions for engravers."

RIDING WITH THE BALLOONS

I've included the preliminary drawing, or under drawing, before the colored pencil painting. This drawing measures 6" x 6" square and was done on Bristol Board with Prismacolor colored pencils.
