Glazing Demo Video

I’ve been aloof with the blog posts. My apologies. I have a few longer posts in the works, and a few videos I’m working on. Here is the first one, the demo I normally do on my plein air painting courses showing how to glaze a dry landscape painting.

I’ll post the next ones as soon as I have enough free time to finish them.


  1. Thank you for the demo Marc. I have a question for you. Do you ever combine glazes, e.g. begin with your titanium white, ultramarine glaze for atmosphere, and then add your warm glaze for the warm glow effect, or is this combination a phenomenon not actually observed in nature?

  2. Thank you Marc for sharing. It is very interesting.
    Impatient to see other video from you.
    I do not understand the importance of turp. I actually work only with medium and don’t see what turpentine can bring to the substance of the paint.
    Maybe you will have the possibility to explain it in one of your video ?

  3. Hi Marc, thanks for the video. There is so little information on glazing. Would you do another to demonstrate glazing on a portrait? Can Liquin be used as a medium for glazing? What if Liquin is used in the base painting? Does it dry faster and provide a stabler base?

    • Hi Jane, sorry for the delayed reply but I sometimes miss comments. I don’t know much about Liquin, sorry. I do know that painters use it for glazing, but I have no experience with it myself.

  4. Thank you for very informative post. How long would you wait post glazing to varnish the painting (if you have already waited six months)? Thank you

    • For a full varnish, another six months would be the safest bet. You want the layers to be separate.

      If you have to ship it out, a retouch varnish can be applied after a few weeks.
