Acrylic on canvas

Canterbury Stained Glass – Acrylic on canvas – 8×10


This is a painting I’ve been wanting to make since I first starting thinking about painting.  I used a mirror technique to help me trace the outlines and to help with some color matching.  I painted this from a photograph I took at Canterbury Cathedral in 2015.

My initial painting adventures

I’ve recently embarked on a new hobby — acrylic painting.  After working tirelessly for the last 6 months on my latest app, my mind has been seeking some way to escape the drudgery.  For the last few months, I’ve taken numerous breaks from working to read articles and watch videos about painting.  As soon as I completed development of my app, I took a trip to my local art store and bought the minimal supplies needed.

I’m very pleased with my first efforts but realize that I have a long way to go.  I’ve learned so much by stepping out my comfort zone and I can’t wait to learn more.  Wish me luck on my new journey!
