One of my FAVorite contemporary realism artist is
Jelaine Faunce.
I've been following her work for a couple of years
and absolutely LOVE her paintings of glass.
I had the opportunity to meet Jelaine last summer, while
talking with her, I asked if she would do a
tutorial on how she paints her glass paintings.
After a LOT of patience she finally did one.
As you can probably guess, Jelaine's technique and mine are
at 2 ends of the spectrum.
She paints with ultra fine brushes and I paint
with a palette knife.
At first I tried my hardest to use a paint brush, but
to keep my sanity after 2 days I
turned to my beloved palette knife to finish the tutorial.
Definitely not the ultra smooth realism
that Jelaine gets but for the first try not to bad.

  1. Karen - this painting simply sings! I love the composition, too! Beautifully done!

    1. Thanks Tammie. I have to give credit to the composition to Jelaine. Once I switched back to my palette knife I really enjoyed painting this one. :-)
