I’ve become a bit entranced with stained glass windows. I guess I’ve always loved them but I’ve never tried to draw or paint them.  This mixed media take on it is hardly realistic, but I think it captures the essence of what I feel when I come into contact with some beautiful church windows, or old fashioned stained glass.

This this is the same print with some detail added using inktense blocks, used like water colours with a brush.

A bit more work with some washes….and I think I’ve ruined it with the too-heavy wings in the bottom right. Stay tuned….(which is really a message to myself to keep working)
