More Tiffany Background
The panel that I copied was part of the landscape window that was commissioned by Richard B. Mellon for the stairway landing of his house at 6500 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, 1908-1912. Six of the ten panels (shown in the black and white illustration) were destroyed when the house was torn down in 1940. The surviving four panels are in the Carnegie Institute.
Now, just for fun, I want to put them side by side, so you can see how closely Gallery Glass paint can look like real stained glass. It isn't too bad--considering I can do this panel (24"x36") in a couple of days (leading AND painting) when it would take months to do it in real stained glass--even if you could source ALL the colors of glass that have been used. I challenge you to push yourself to learn more about stained glass shading and possibilities with Gallery Glass, as I have. Find a Tiffany project on the internet and try it.
