As always, gorgeous knife skills, Jan. Great composition and values too. This one seems especially...lush is the word that comes to mind! All that foliage is beautiful. What does the title mean?

Thanks a lot Annie.
Well, there are actually 15 chapels.
One can find it in several places here in Belgium.
In each chapel is located a sculpture or a painting of the life of Christ.
People go there to pray..............................jan :)

Wonderful rich, lush application. If it's not oil paint it sure looks like it. The values look perfect!

Hi again, Jan! I just had an unfortunate experience with liquin impasto so I wanted to ask about your paint. Do you use any kind of medium or other additive? Or is it straight out of the tube?

Thanks, Jan. I don't really know for sure how it happened, but it seemed to make the paint more transparent than what I expected. And although it did hold brushstrokes, they seemed to be partially leveled. I've never used it before and I think I must have done something wrong - I added both oil and solvent to the mix and maybe that caused the brushstrokes to level a bit, or maybe it' not intended for use student quality paints. (Probably most of the problem was that I was rushing this particular piece and consequently made other - mostly color-related - mistakes too. Great learning experience though! :lol:)

When you use it, do you paint over existing paint that you've laid down, or do you paint with all the knife strokes next to each other? I think that might have been an issue too.

I'd love to see a WIP of something you paint, Jan, if you have the time or inclination. :)

Hi Annie, I just add liquin in the paint. No other thinners.
I paint layer upon layer, both wet and dry. I also mix on the canvas.
Shortly I make a video while I paint. I'll let you know when he's ready...............................jan :)

I wish I'd painted it and you had a wart on your nose. (couldn't help myself, that's an old Southern expression I never could understand either) lol.
I just love the lusciousness of it. Makes you want to eat it. Now dangital I have to go look at all your other work
