Painting of a rock at Botanical Beach using black glass scavenged from the window of a car that was broken into.
This is the rock at Botanical Beach that inspired the painting. Taking a lesson from the difficulties of painting acrylic over glass this time I added a lot of black and Payne’s Grey to my spackling/acrylic mix. This is a little more successful but again needs a lot of work. Here is the next stage, with Payne’s Grey liquid acrylic glaze over top of the glass and some messing around in Photoshop to see what to do next. Oddly, I like it better upside down, so for now that’s the way its staying.
An angled view of the painting showing a close-up of the black car window glass. Botanical Beach Rocks, 12″ x 16″, Mixed media on a wood cradle. Some more of the rocks of Botany Bay which will probably show up as paintings some day.
