What is glazing an oil painting all about?

What is glazing? 

Glazing is the application of one or more thin, transparent (or nearly transparent) layers of paint over another color. The lower layer must be dry so that the colors do not mix physically. Light passes through the glaze, reflects off of the opaque layer below it, and then is reflected back through the glaze to the observer's eye, modifying the color in the process. For example, a blue glaze applied over a yellow will modify the yellow toward green. Glazing always results in a darker color than the original.
