Product Description


‘Glazing with an emphasis on the craft of painting’.

The first comprehensive book on the technique of glazing, written by Michael Wilcox, has been published by the School of Color. 

The methods of the Old Masters made available for today’s artist. Early Masters such as Rembrandt applied multiple layers of transparent paint to produce the deep, glowing hues and darks which typified their work; darks which seethed with hidden colour. The range of rich colours employed by these earlier painters gave a mysterious depth and intensity to their work, a richness and luminosity which only the glazing technique could give. The aim of this book is to equip today’s artist with the technique of glazing developed by the Masters. Lessons from the past brought fully up to date, this book will enable the reader to achieve similar colour effects. Your work will improve dramatically. 

308 pages in full colour.
