Painting On Glass

I had a video shoot yesterday with Jay Stearns of Accent Productions.  He is making a short video about me for my web site.  I find that being videotaped or photographed while I work really affects how I paint, and it's interesting to see the results.  It sometimes sends me in new directions.  Which raises all sorts of interesting questions for me about process... which I can ponder in a future post.

Here is a little footage we made as an experiment.  Jay edited it and sent it to me; then I edited it some more.  I chose not to put any sound to it for now.

  1. That's fascinating. I imagine the 'painting' side is far less subtle. Painting on Gelli plates is a great way to make monoprints.

  2. This is very cool and inspiring. Especially since I have been thinking about and working with tranceparency and opacity in my own work. Great view. Thanks for sharing

  3. A new challenge. It must take some practice before you can keep in mind that the layer seen most vividly is what is put down first and subsequent layers are behind those. I have pieces of glass saved from frames and now want to try this. Did you paint on plexiglass?

    1. It's just a sheet of glass. The whole point is the process and the video, not the painting, but it WAS interesting thinking about the backside of it as I was working.

    1. I won't take credit for the idea - it was Jay's idea to try this. The "piece" is not a permanent piece, just a process video. But.... we could do this on DuraLar or something. The whole thing got me thinking in new ways.

  7. Awesome! A few brush strokes and a brayer. Wonder what it looks like from the front...
