Painting of a rock at Botanical Beach with black tempered glass embedded into an acrylic/spackling/sand mix.
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 needed 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.
