In this post, we will discuss the oil painting technique called “Glazing”. Included below are several videos as well as step by step tutorials and lessons from around the Web, that discuss and demonstrate the Glazing technique.
Glazing is the process of applying a thin layer of translucent or transparent oil paint over a dry opaque layer of oil paint, which creates an effect unlike any other.
Light travels through the transparent or translucent layer of oil paint and bounces off the opaque layer creating a sort of glowing effect that is very difficult to create with other oil painting techniques.
The effect is known as “Optical Color Mixing”. Colors are not mixed together physically on a palette or canvas, but are instead mixed optically through the various layers of glazes.
Learn all about this oil painting technique through the various videos and tutorials that I have collected below. Enjoy!

HI everyone, pretty excited for this video as a lot of people asked me questions about glazing. I had a hard time finding good glazing footage on one of my actual painting and it was not really satisfying for the video so I decided to paint a little sketch instead. It’s not as nice but at least I really get to show you what glazing can do and play around with it. Hopefully you can learn something out of it !

Glazing plein air landscape paintings. This is one of the demos I do on my plein air landscape courses. The medium I can be acquired in the US from Blue Ridge oil colors (De Mayerne medium) or from Zecchi in Florence (Antichi maestri). My ‘Minute Painting Video #3’ also has the recipe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCvvU… I edited the audio in a couple of places as I misspoke during the demo (oil paint expands, not contracts and Boschini, not Vasari, wrote about Titian).
