Demonstration of glazing with oil paint

This is a shot that includes everything I was working
with to demonstrate how you glaze color over a
dry underpainting. The underpainting was done
in raw umber and titanium white and allowed to
dry completely. Then layers of color are applied,
each one needing to dry before the next one is put
on. I use an alkyd medium as the glaze medium.
In the 'olden days' I made my own glazing mixture.
But hey, I don't use tin cans and string to make
calls anymore either!
