We will be learning how to do the old masters technique taught to me by the artist Yvonne Reddick. This technique was developed in Europe and used by artists like Rembrandt. It is characterized by many layers of thin paint over a greyscale, it has largely been superseded by realist and impressionist styles that don’t glaze but paint all in one layer with the desired colours. Glazes are somewhat transparent so the previous layers colors show through giving paintings done with glazing a different look from other methods.
