Glazing is a process of applying a thin layer or layers of translucent paint over a more opaque layer of paint. A glaze creates luminosity and an inner glow on a canvas that can be like stained glass. Watch artist Margret Ellen Turner as she demonstrates how she works with glazes.
Join Graeme Stevenson in this episode of 'Colour in Your Life' as he interviews Brisbane Artist De Gillett about painting, drawing, art workshops, art tips and art techniques.
De Gillett is best known for her self-developed ways of working with acrylic paints. Having learned to paint in isolation, she uses techniques all her own invention, and keeps no secrets when she shows you exactly how to get started, and then how to troubleshoot and fix all the issues that may arise during these brave, intuitive processes.
