His Light Shines by Kyle Wood


Original Oil on Canvas
16×20 Unframed

This painting was created from photographs that I took in the Smoky Mountains. This chapel is actually located in downtown Gatlinburg, Tennessee, which my wife and I stumbled upon while vacationing. It is used primarily for weddings and special occasions. For the painting, I wanted to capture a late evening or early morning scene with sun barely in view. Also, I decided to emphasis the light coming from the stain glass windows. The design of the stain glass windows was slightly modified from the original design. To give the illusion of the stain glass, I painted the windows dabbing dots of color laid next to each other. The technique is similar to what George Seurat did in the 1800’s, but on a much smaller scale. For the main window, I decided to add a cross as a reminder that Jesus shed his blood for our sins and he is the light of our world.
