Somewhere Behind Closed Eyes by angrymikko Somewhere Behind Closed Eyes by angrymikko
I think I painted this last Saturday. I like oil painting it's like knitting a sweater or something after a long work week of digital painting.

This painting is about one meter high and it's all done with bäkers oils. They're so damn expensive that I felt like I had to use them for something so they wouldn't just sit in the corner.

I hate washing brushes afterwards because it takes so much time. That's one of the reasons why I throw away almost 10 brushes a year. (the other is that I use odd liquids that stiffen the brushes no matter what I do, but they make the colours very bright so I'm ok with that)

Oh yeah thank you all for the 100 000 pageviews! :hug: free hugs and :cookie: s for everyone!

Superb! I love how you did the rocks and the trees. Reminds me of the guy who was on PBS all the time who would always paint those marvelous vistas. I forget his name but this reminds me of a few of his paintings

I wouldn't part with it under 500€ as it's in my work room on a visible spot and it still makes me go silently "yay" every morning I see it. I do have way too many paintings though it's a shame nobody sees them when they're in piles like that.

Unfortunately, I don't have that much money to spend. Thanks for the quick reply though.

When was the last time I wash my brushes... Oh that will be 3 months ago... Geez, no wonder they are making me bad recently...
I can't afford to buy expensive oils, I allways paint with cheap, chinese ones (like Maries or Reeves), but I'm just a beginer so I'm ok with that.

Yeah it's really good thing to do something traditional after pianting all week with painting digital (I allways paint one painting in saturday for exercise using traditional oils)

Now, what can I say about the painting itself: I really like your style of painting and those textures made with brush... Geez, when I will paint like this??
Keep up good work and more traditional please, cuz you are great with this technique ;)

This is so beautiful, the light reflected in the water is amazing! And the texture of the rock cliffs is great too. I love the colours!

I love your landscapes and you inspire me to drag out my oils again. I got a nice easel for christmas and have only used it once!

Great job!
