Study of Techniques-Pre Raphaelite Art Exhibit

I like to go to the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) to study and learn from the works of other artists. Currently the AGO has an exhibit of works from Holman Hunt and other artists of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. I was able to study the structural compositions of the paintings. I was also able to study the artists use of glazing (transparent layers of paint), scumbling (semi transparent, translucent layers), and impasto (thick opaque paint). This was my primary objective and I came away with knowledge of how the artists used these techniques to achieve their artistic goals. Of course, I was able to view their use of other elements, i.e. light, colour, etc.
