Our demo discussion on Oct. 4 will be on glazing.

You can use glazing extensively in acrylics. As well there is an old tradition of using glazes in oils. Vermeer, as well as other painters, used glazing techniques to save money. Paints were so expensive: blue in particular.
Light reflects differently off of a transparent glaze layer verses an opaque layer. The results are wonderful.

The blues in Vermeer’s works were glazed over gray underpainting.
