Description

The skill of painting with oil paints on glass in the manner of the naïve art "Hlebine School of Painting" is a special technique of applying paint to the glass. It is characteristic that the painting is done with the so-called reverse technique. It is an extremely demanding technique, because it requires concentration and, above all, a plan. The painter needs to know exactly what he wants to show. It is necessary to constantly turn the glass and monitor what is happening on the other side. In addition, the glass material is prone to damage and cracking, so this technique is intended for true lovers. Although demanding, the technique offers a lot of options in choosing colors that look magical on the glass. On the other hand, it is possible to paint even the smallest details by which the painters of the Hlebine painting school are widely known.
