This is one of my newest paintings titled "Peacock Blue". Working on tall canvas' is one of my favorite things to create with. The size of the canvas measures 18x36x1.5 inches on framed gallery wrapped canvas with the sides painted black. As with each painting, I first hand draw everything. Then comes the color and the outlining. It is a long process lasting anywhere to a couple of week to months. The secret to the stained glass look is what I prime my canvas' with, it really makes those colors pop! I paint my sides black to finish the piece but I love the way the black "leaks" or drifts around the canvas from the outlining on the front, it has a really nice flow to it. The colors are rich and deep on this piece and it has a dramatic feel to it. I love it and hope you will too!
