Pears with Glaze - SOLD
Pears with Glaze Oil with Glazing on Canvas Panel, 8" x 10" SOLD at $45.00 plus shipping. Glazing is something I've been wanting to try, especially since we did a value study in black and white for our online class (the one I'm teaching) and it seemed logical to try out some glazing. It isn't as easy as it sounds. The tricky part is getting the right amount of glaze, and not letting your colors turn to soup. The other hard part is the waiting between coats, almost like watercolors, but way slower. It's a technique that requires much patience, but gives an interesting and subtle effect. This one started out as below: Neat, huh? But many steps in between. The background turned into a mauvey purple tone, very nice. Thanks for looking.
