Painted canvas


I created this canvas by painting several layers of acrylic paint; firstly, starting with layers of yellow, orange and red, and then adding the turquoise and yet more yellow and orange. I used various stencils and stamps to create extra interest and depth. The figures are image transfers created from photos of mine that I took of icons in Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. The words were added using rub-on letters before the final glazing layer.
