30" x 20" Oil on Canvas 2016
This is a Gothic fantasy traditional portrait painting based off of my digital painting "Pale Feathers", which was originally based off of the photography of Marali Sadykhov.
Because this oil painting was painted in many layers over a sepia underpainting, the artwork will actually look better as it ages. The reason for this is that oils turn more transparent over time, so as the years go by the shadows will deepen, giving the painting a more lifelike appearance.
This portrait was created using premium quality Grumbacher, Gamblin, and Winsor & Newton oils, and Varnished with Gamblin’s Gamvar painting varnish.
It's initialed and dated on the front, and signed, titled, dated on the back. It ships unframed and ready to hang. The 3/4” thick sides have been painted red to match the portrait.
