Glazed Atlas Jar Painting

In this painting I tried a little different technique. Many of you are probably familiar with the old masters approach to painting. I painted the panel with several monochrome underpaintings and then after it has completely tried I glazed it with a local color. This approach requires patience, which I have little of, and extreme deligence. I must admit, this approcah is time consuming but the results are stunning. The transparent glaze allows for light to travel through layers of transparent colors and the impasto surface becomes more dynamic.
