Glaze is the application of a transparent color layer over an opaque color layer. (Icing of a yellow on a blue for example to obtain green). The glaze gives the colors an extraordinary depth. It may be lighter or darker than the tone in which it is passed. Glazing can be done in half cool, or after drying the layers below.
For my part, each canvas is made up of 5 to 10 successive layers, always richer in oil as the canvas advances, that’s why I make my own painting mediums according to the canvas evolution stage to avoid cracks.
The enrichment that glaze brings to color is magic. Only this technique in my eyes can take the viewer into the privacy of my dreams.
