Breath-taking. Do you use a particular kind of brush on your work, I would love to see your techniques, big fan.

Thanks. Nope, I just use synthetic white brushes, the cheap kind.

I first thought it was a photo.
This is amazing! I love the composition of the blue glass and the yellow light.

I just love everything you do. I am astounded every time I see your work.

How long does it take to finish such work?
What acrylic colours do you use? (I mean base colours and brand)
Do you use a reference?
Do you do grid painting to get everything on it's place?
What brushes do you use?

I hope you could answer on those questions. :)

The average is about 6 weeks.
Liquitex heavy body. This painting is basically Ultramarine, Cerulean Blue, Cadmium Orange, Burnt Umber, Cadmium Yellow, and a black that I make out of Dioxazine Purple, Burnt Umber and Mars Black.
I painted this from photographs that I took. No grid, I just drew in rough shapes and made up the details as I painted. I use cheap, white bristled, synthetic brushes.

This is just.... incredible! The amount of detail is astonishing, and everything looks so much blended, that you can never see the trace of your brush...!
You're the epitome of awesomeness!

This is next level stuff. Incredible dedication to your images. Is there a point where you feel like you are suffering to complete them, and does that suffering break at some point? It has to be very painstaking. Kudos to you, sir. I am beyond amazed.

Thank you. Yeah, it gets fatiguing. I used to start another painting to refresh myself but lately I just do one at a time.

Do you paint in a cycle? I usually draw 20 minutes on and 5 minutes off to fight fatigue and frustration. Or do you just grind it out until you're totally taxed and call it a day?

I keep a daily schedule of working about 8 or 9 hours. I take breaks to eat, play guitar, go for a bike ride..

I can't decide which of you're glass painting a prefer. They're all so beautiful. Well, maybe this one because of all the lighting reflection.

I can't believe these paintings of yours, they look so much like photographs. It's just so amazing... How long does it usually take you to paint one, this one for example?
