Fun with Glazes

Painting by Vicky Christensen, acrylic on 12 X 9 inch canvas panel
Last night I wanted to clean up my palette so I slopped the paint left over from the Philadelphia sunrise onto a canvas panel. I took a look at the panel today and decided it was perfect for playing around with transparent paints and glazing medium. This is the result. I wish I could say that the stained glass pattern was from my fertile imagination, but I got a little nudge from a photo my brother-in-law took a while back. I used an acrylic marker to paint the lead.

This was so much fun. I might do something similar on a larger scale.
