Stained Glass Painting

I look at a web site quite often called Paint My Photo,which allows you to use any of their photographs as a reference for painting a picture.  Recently they had a challenge to do a “Stained Glass” painting from one of their images.  Here is the photograph I chose:IMG_1018

I had a 12 x 16 canvas on which I had been “playing”, so i gessoed it all over to cover up what was on it.  Then I proceeded to use this reference and paint it with acrylic paints.  Some of my paints were old and beyond use,but I found enough to paint the following:IMG_1017  I had some black India ink which I used with a small brush to separate the sections, and then painted a black acrylic border around, covering the sides of the canvas so it could be hung without framing.  I like this, so I think I will try a different one on watercolor paper using watercolors.  Will let you know how it turns out.

Thanks for stopping by.
