Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, but also discuss history, folklore and films and books. Hope you have a nice stay!

Oil on Canvas - 20" x 48"
As with OPEN, I was working to establish the connecting points between my Passage paintings and this new series, before I went on to define the new themes in their entirety. I hope to get back to this world soon.

Honestly, the fact that he can make oil paint look like that is rather astonishing.  I wonder how long the dry times were before he would work on the next layer.  It's nothing like Acrylic paint (his usual medium) and some colors take a long time to dry.  Though I have no idea which ones, I just know some do 8D
