"Head Em Up - Move Em Out"
Here is my latest piece and I have added some reverse painting to enhance the detail. Because the painting is on the back of the glass, when it is applied to the mosaic it is sealed between two pieces of glass making it totally protected. In the past I have used this technique only for detail such as veining on leaves etc. but this is a new approach. I have also used a dark sky this time to add to the drama of the piece.
It is interesting that in this photo there is more reflected light and most of the lighter purple pieces in the sky seem to disappear!
