Painting Challenge: Stained Glass

Stained glass has been made since ancient times, first as wares (cups, vases), then to windows.  This week’s challenge is to…

Paint stained glass.

Include the topic hashtag in your Watercolor – Beginners and Beyond Facebook group post: #stainedglass

Deadline January 20, 2023, 11:59 pm ET

Stained glass has always been one of my favorite art forms.  I love to see sunlight shine through creating vivid, gorgeous colors.   This may be why I love watercolor so much.  Transparent paint on paper, it looks like light shining through the paper.

My painting based on a reference photo I took at Notre Dame in Paris, 2010.

You may create your own stained glass design, or copy from a reference photo.  

What is the prize?   

There will be 3 random winners this week.   Each winner will receive lifetime access to Angela Fehr’s Watercolor Workout Course.

This is one of the exercises in this course.

This course focuses on the exercises that Angela uses herself.  You will find these lessons strengthen your painting skills, helping you think more creatively as she demonstrates creative warmups and exercises focused on:

  • Exploring watermedia – watercolour pencils, ink pencils, aquasticks & more
  • Sketching on the go
  • Using sketches to build a painting (using contour drawing, value studies, shape studies & more)
  • Evaluating and learning from your best work
