At school this winter I developed a fondness for painting on glass--it's nice and smooth, and I can usually find old frames and windows for free. This is the latest piece I've done:


The figures are painted on the front of the glass, the brown background is on the back, and the landscape is on the backing cardboard. When you see it in person, it gives a subtle depth to the painting.

As a comparison, this is before the backing cardboard was painted, that part remains clear and can be changed out if I want.

Once I am finished re-backing it, I'll post up the double-portrait I did in a double-paned window, it's my favorite glass peice.

That is totally awesome! You are right, that gives it a wonderful depth! Did you use acrylic?
I cannot wait to see your double pained picture!

Just plain acylic works fine, you just need to be carefully not to add much water and not to overwork areas or else they will peel up.
