Queen of Secrets
30" x 30" Oil on Canvas 2016
This is a traditional oil painting of a gothic fairy queen based off of a digital painting I created back in 2015 of a self portrait of Natalia Drepina. Open edition prints of the digital painting version are available here:
No prints or reproductions of this oil painting version will be made.
Because of the technique I used with this oil painting being painted in many layers, 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 Pre-Tested Grumbacher and Gamblin oil paints, and varnished with Gamblin’s Gamvar painting varnish.
It's initialed and dated on the front, and signed, titled, dated on the back.
This artwork ships unframed.
