glass painting sketch

Thought I'd have a dabble with some of the glass paints I have in the studio.
A flower picture to brighten up the holiday.

I outlined it first of all on paper

then again on a glass pane using gold glass lining paint

then filled a little with coloured Vitrea. It should be set tomorrow with any luck so I can stand the glass up without it dribbling

and I'll take the paper off and frame it.

Gorgeous Gill! Like old world cloisonne. Do you plan to add more colour, or leave the rest of the gold outlines unfilled? Please take a photo of the final framed piece to show us! Thanks for sharing, Celia

Lovely to see these Gillbo........ very uplifting!

I have a few paintings 'on the reverse' - mostly victorian and I love them.

What are you putting in the exhibition?

Morning Celia
Will do when it's framed.
I'm leaving the image as it is, to preserve it as a sketch.

It's a bit pretty for me, I'm normally much more scratchy splashy.

Lush-totty! howdy!
Nice effect isn't it.

I've got 3 images to go in as it's a drawing exhibit - no big bugger paintings which is a forte of moi

the sketch I painted with Dan and David in the Lake District, got to sell that one if I can, it's for chariddy
a small pencil thing on the beach in Spain
& this one. I just fancied a bit of colour, me.

Absolutely lovely Gill! Love the minimalist feeling about it combined with the richness of the paint. It will be great to see it with the backing of your choice and framed.

Have a smashing success at the exhibit!! Elisaxx

Thank you so much, Elisa
It's a shame it's too far for you ;)

Is this the technique you were practising on your marmalade jars? It's very pretty indeedy Miss Gill. I was quite jealous of those jars I have to say, though I am not supposed to be jealous, just say ooh that's good!
