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:
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: 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.
