Heavenly Choir

Nora Faber's avatar Nora Faber

This painting is a choir signing in the sky. People are expressing joy in many different ways. I created this work to show the Joy I feel while I am painting and worshiping. However, the style is a bit different for me and needed to be painted with a different process because I had a broken finger. It was painted on Clayboard with acrylics and Ink, and then Oils were wiped over it and rubbed off to create a stain; a multi-layered technique to create depth. It is a bold painting for my style. The texture way created with a mat medium mixed with acrylics. Then, the black marks were painted with an ink dropper. Lastly, after getting my cast removed, I added balance and color to the work with layers of oils.
