It’s not that easy to paint on glass, thus all these artworks by Elza Kolesnikova are real masterpieces. She has no professional education, but does a great work at painting her drawings on the back side of the glass “canvas” using watercolors.
Elza has to create her works blindly, trusting her memory, because the upper watercolor layer has to be perfect. One mistake and your painting will be destroyed. You’ll have to start from the very beginning.
When the painting is finished it is covered with enamel and left to dry. And this is when you can finally notice the most amazing feature of watercolor paintings on glass. These patterns change their color depending on the lights, time and even weather. It’s simply fantastic!
