Ancestors of the Tapestry
oil and cold wax
9 x 12 inch gesso panel
This painting has been shown in progress a couple of times on my blog. I was not sure the mega-texture was going to work with this, but it was kind to me.
Some areas were easy because of the texture, like the flowing hair on the figure on the right and also the grass. Other areas were more of a challenge. Take the arm, for example...so bumpy. However, once I added the lace sleeve, that seemed to cure the problem.
Here are some close-up views.
Happy week to you all. More work to show you soon. I've been painting a lot.
