    Glass Repair Man...

    ...in La Sagrada Familia. This was inspired by some refs at WetCanvas. I have been wanting to do something with stain glass light. So, here is today's "offering" Appx 14x16 at 300 (I'm always more comfortable, when doing figures to use the higher res). Oils. 3 layers. Impressionism (It seems to fit the subject matter better than Realism, per se.)

    Such a wonderful strong painting, I like the reflections and also like that you left the right side without the stained glass, as it would have taken your eye away from the artist, wonderful painting Skylar

    You had an astounding idea to paint this powerful portrait into the colored light coming through the stained glass windows of an architectural masterpiece like the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, conceived by the incredible Gaudě and still under completion. Marvellous!
