If you’re unfamiliar with glazing, it’s when you build up a painting with multiple transparent layers of colour, or glazes. When I initially began learning how to paint I wasn’t at all interested in learning about the traditional techniques. I thought there’d be a bunch of “rules” that would constrain rather than inspire. However, one of the ways I direct my learning is by teaching myself how to do something that I’ve admired in another’s painting. A technique that I keep seeing pop up time and again is glazing. I’d like to share some of the artwork that has inspired me to one day explore this great traditional technique.
