The “Santa Macabra Muerte” is a piece that I adored making, I enjoyed doing it!
I love the contrast between the sheer/textured black and white and the golden background.
The idea was to have a bright background but as I often do, I “killed” all that light by curbing it with a black haze and allowed only a few rays to shine.
The frame is old, it was completely covered with brass and some parts were missing.
I cleaned and then repainted the frame and then veiled it with red.
I liked the result very much and I think I will often use this finish for the frames.
