All my works were painted in glazing technique.
This method allows to create depth in the paintings by light penetrating through the many layers of paint (sometimes even dozens) that are transparent and thinly applied. Light shining through these layers reflects from the chalky ground and illuminates the dyes from below.
Glazing is very time consuming and requires a lot of work and technological knowledge. With this technique you can achieve an impression of depth and nobility and get a diversity of hues and color richness.
This way of painting was a well kept secret used by the Flemish Primitives and Italian masters during the 15th and 16th century. Because it is a very labour-intensive process, this technique today almost entirely disappeared.
No other technique can bring similar, spectacular effects. Masters of glazing were among others Jan van Eyck, Rogier van der Weyden, Dirk Bouts or Rembreandt.
