Pure Color Glazes
Pure Color Glazes are reminiscent of stained glass with natural sunlight streaming through.
The use of clear transparent colored pigment allows the artist the luxury of easy application
with dramatic results. Transparent colors are the most clean of all pigments.
They're similar to tiny bits of ground glass with nothing to stop the flow of sunlight through them.
A few Renaissance masters actually added ground glass in their colored pigments to enhance
the sparkling quality of illumination in their paintings. This color radiance became the
hallmark of Renaissance and Baroque Master Painters.
Today's artists enjoy the distinctive advantage of richly saturated oil colors
that are clear and clean, bright and extremely powerful.
When applied over a classic grisaille foundation these pure color glazes
yield a magnificent radiance in the finished art work.
Oil is a natural conductors of radiant sunlight and when natural sunlight
can participate in the finished art work, the colors are rich and beautiful.
There is no substitute for this process. Acrylic colors are not as dazzling
because they lack the ingredient of pure oil, the conductor of sunlight.
Linda Coulter specializes in this type of pure color glazes to transform
her classic grisaille designs to full color masterpieces.
She has taught this Coulter Grisaille™ art style to 10,000 people from
five continents during her 40 year teaching art career.
The combination of grisaille underpainting and pure color over glazing divides
and conquers the painting process to enable even the beginner painter
to achieve dramatic results very quickly.
