Half oil on old canvas with a reworked silver, red and black frame
My new painting was born on a soporific Sunday in August. I had a bestial sleep but I had decided to paint a little. And I painted one sleeping .
The technique is a half oil, I call it that but I don’t know if it is the right definition, that is, I started with acrylic and then I finished it with oil because the canvas had an enormous rough material layer and it did not allow me much detail. With the oil I gave it depth to the dark tones, for now it is obviously not painted yet but it will take less than a beautiful oil painting.
The frame was all gilded. Initially I re-silvered and burnished it a bit but it didn’t convince me, so I put some red in it to capture the details of the Red eyes in the dark. The idea of red framed came to me thanks to Chiara who asked me for a red frame for the painting “Birth of a Witch”. In that case and soon I’ll show you the result, the red was not there because the painting was completely black and white. Here instead it stands out and warms up. I will wax this frame and not paint. We’ll see .
P.s. as always, he reminded you that it is not painted yet and the oil has all its reflection problems that I find it hard to eliminate
