So I've sold an oil painting that I did several years ago, inspired by the book I've read. This was pretty much fast, direct painting approach, I only did one sketch before I took the canvas. You can see the painting here:
This one goes to US now, insured international shipping. I hope it will reach the buyer fast. I've covered it with satin Winsor Newton artists varnish for oils the day before shipping.
If you are interesting for purchasing my oil paintings, send me a note as not all of them are currently available (some are going to the exhibition).
