A Peeling

I remember being dazzled with the reflections in office buildings painted by the great photo realist Richard Estes. Worlds in worlds.
I thought I would try something like it, but with a very different subject.
An acrylic wash underpainting, sealed with Gac 100 and matte medium. Then oil, on Arches oil paper. Quite a few glazes. About 14x16. This is the old abandoned place I crept into a while back. You may remember the interior.
Derek

Re: A Peeling

Now, THAT is COOL,......with the interior door behind the glass window, and the see-through window behind it! And, the peeling paint. This is a most unusual subject, and very well painted!

Re: A Peeling

(sigh) this is perfect. The texture of the paint, unbelievable Derek.
Not to mention the reflective window/door/interior/background; the depth!
Bravo, sir.

Re: A Peeling

Excellent subject and really well painted. Part of the appeal for me is the mystery: Who lived there? What exactly are those refections? The layers, etc.

Re: A Peeling

There are very few people in this world who can make peeling paint admirable on a painting forum filled with people dedicated to archival-ness, and yet you did it!!

Re: A Peeling

So much atmosphere in such a 'simple' piece! I can feel all of the textures when I look at them. It's a very sensory painting (if that makes sense). I like it very much!
