Thanx!, Basicly its acrylic on canvas, but its done with little, and very thin paint. In process I both apply and remove paint , so lighter parts are just places with less paint, and what you see there is gesso primer. I hope it can be any help for you, as I see that you are enthousiastic paiter yourself.
Im not sure what exactly glazing process is (if you could explain me), but indeed its possible to do the same with oil, but then you´d have a few weeks instead of days drying time, and a lot of turpentine fumes (insted of water), It is very similar technique to Vermeer, he used colour, and oil paint insted of acrylic , ...and he was much much better of course...
i would argue that anyone can beat your preciseness- your ability to bring figures to life.. glazing is just using large amounts of medium to small amounts of paint to lay very thin layers on top of one another, like what you already do, and indeed it is a pain in the ass... i'm taking a class right now that deals with the glazing process and personally i hate it... but we will see how it turns out... i should have it up within the next two weeks or so- it doesn't look very realistic though, like yours
Thanx!, I see, now I remember someone else from US mentioned the word. Well, I just aplly thin , transparent layer, let it dry , and than remove it with hard sponge only from places which suppose to be lighter.. its not really glazing , but thanx for definition! In fact it was common practice in XVII to XIX century.I recomend it! Good luck with your classes!
