I have always been wanting to know how to glaze. This is the process from start to finish. The idea of glazing is adding transparent strokes on top of another, my glazing felt more like tinting. I started from dark painting and then tinting it with cold transparent colours. On top that I'v been experimenting with different oil mixtures, galkyd, stand oil and alkyd, knowing I was experimenting I was not afraid in screwing up the painting. I learned that glazing with stand oil has yellowed my colours in a week, all blues had a turned to a strange green/ yellow colour. Once I finished glazing which is the 2nd image. I was bored and wanted to do something more, if anyone tried transfers on canvas you will know what the last imagine is made out of. I glued a giant piece of paper on top of my painting and took water and slowly started to remove the paper off with a soft sponge and revealing a ghostly image. I left the bits of paper that is scattered all over the face and frame of the painting.
