A new one that I was rather pleased with. There are one or two itsy bitsy mistakes here but over all this is it. :)

something is different about this, though i can't quite place my finger on it. it's certainly a powerful piece and nearly jumps right off the screen. i can only imagine what a big impact it has in real life. i love it as always and am so glad to see so much of your work posted today. keep them coming, please!

:) The background is not as agitated as usual. I am trying a different method with my backgrounds. mjk:)

wow mj
you caught my attention with this one... and its not due to the change up in your palette...

I would like it if you did a WIP sometime and explained some of your procedures and techniques

I really dig the brushwork and texture you create. Would love for you to share some of the techniques in your toolbox with me.

Anyway, impressive piece.

Why Thanks Stefan

Tis an Oil Painting approx 400mm x 300mm (20 inches x 15 inches)

Most of my painting is done without a brush. I may apply the first coat with a brush then its usually fingers and palette knife. Mistakes get painted over and then sometimes scratched back over.

:D Most of the work I post on W.C. is W.I.P.:D

Oh! I think this is stunning. The green and the darks work great together.

movement, stillness, and color depth; a catching image
i am reminded of the stop motion animation filming technique
like the painting is a few overlapping stills in a sequence of action
very intriguing
