Iris is one of my most beloved flowers. I could never get tired of looking at it and admire its exquisite beauty, contrast of its fluid petals and stark precision of leaves, distinguished poise of its steams and great variety of its shapes and hues. Each year I'm looking forward to spring and my blue irises blooming. And of course, I really like to draw and paint irises a lot... whether utilizing colored pencils, markers, watercolors or acrylic media.
During my journey into the color-world I’ve experimented with various styles and techniques and then one day several years ago, I’ve come up with my own, which I call “stained glass on canvas”. This painting was one of the earlier ones I’ve done in this technique.
To paint this artwork I’ve used high-quality acrylic paints, after which the lines I’ve made with a Vitrel relief outliner to produce stained glass effect on canvas. I’ve finished the painting with several coats of clear high-gloss varnish to increase the effect and to protect investment for years of display.
The stained glass effect is best realized when you look at it with your very own eyes and in closer proximity. The photo image does not do any justice to this beautifu, one-of-a-kind painting, as my camera does not capture neither the richness and luminosity of colors, nor the dimensional relief of the lines, replacing glass-like shine of the surface with a flashlight glare.
The artwork is artist-signed and dated on a back and in perfect condition. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and is ready to be displayed with or without a frame. Sides of canvas painted so framing is not necessary.
