I have been intrigued by the term 'glazing' in reference to painting lately. It is layers of paint thinned with medium to produce a luminescence... (at least that is my take on it.. just from reading about it) It requires a lot patience.. something I usually lack and therein lay the excitement for me! I have been thinking that i really need to slow down a bit and think a little more and this allowed me to do just that! This is a very different process from what I am used to doing, but my mother had just brought over these bowls of mine that she had at her house. I evidently had gotten them several years ago and planned to eBay them and never got that far.. then we moved.. she took them.. and to make a long story short.. there were these beautiful jadite bowls just begging to be painted! So this is my version of glazing.. not sure if it is a textbook example.. but it was fun to paint tighter and to slow down for once....
