This piece is based on an original that was created for the “Beautiful Bizarre” award show at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, CA, USA, Jan, 2019.
How the original was created:
The painting technique I mostly use resembles the Flemish method of layering thin veneers of paint between layers of varnish. I am no fan of white canvases so I often prepare my canvases in advance either using pastels and ink or just diluted acrylics. After the underpainting is done I paint a lighter layer with acrylics and finish with a couple of thicker layers using oils, occasionally acrylics, and sometimes gold leaf and ink.
