„The guardian angel“

from the gallery of Iwona Fafara-Pilch

The original, folk art, reverse glass painting, painted with professional acrylic paints.

Technique description

The painting on the glass, more precisely on the other side of glass pane, it's a unique and original painting technique. In case of painting on the glass every gesture and movement is irreversible. There is no possibility to fix anything. The glass as the painting support enables to get the special distinctiveness of color. The color saturates itself. Once the color is dynamic, and other time more static - it shimmers under the influence of light.

The reverse glass painting technique is different from the painting on the other types of ground. Contrary to the name of this technique, the paints are applied under the glass, whereas the painted work is being watched from the other side. This is a specific painting technique, requiring of thinking over beforehand and the accuracy.
