i first did something like this two years ago. as a whimsy. people always "oohed" and "ahhed" at the framed version. i guess it is eye catching. so - i am doing some more of them now. the original ("passage tranquille #1) was bought by a local psychologist. she said it calmed her and she hoped it would do the same for her patients. i wonder if the subsequent pieces will live up to the first piece?

This is an alla prima piece. simple. three pigments. maybe four. yeah four. aureolin, maimeru blue violet, phthalo green and a touch of alizarin. from a distance it is actually photo-realistic. which is amazing considering the lack of detail. 15x22". a lot of fun.
