Instant Reproduction Artist

Want to be an instant (Oil/Watercolor) artist? Remove the glass from a new picture frame and tape the glass down over the picture image you desire. Get oils or watercolor paints and paint the picture on the glass; using the picture as your 'copy guide (better than 'by the numbers').

When finished, let dry and insert it in the frame with non-painted glass surface on the exterior. Now you have a reproduction and you did it (who is to know that it is a 'mirror image').

This will not work for watercolors. Might not even work for oils. The color will just bead up on the glass.

I would know it wasn't an original oil painting because oil paintings aren't put behind glass.

I think it is a very good idea, using a two thousand-year old technique to turn a photography into a creation of your own. To see masterpieces using this technique google the words "reversed painting on glass". You will find plenty of tips for the right type of painting to use. To try to copy a watercolour painting maybe one could try felt pen. Some modern artists like american H.Craig Hanna use Perspex (acrylic sheet) instead of glass.
