Mask of Oblivion by mariosvonkerpen Mask of Oblivion by mariosvonkerpen
18" X 14", Oil on Canvas, 2012.

I started the initial sketch for this painting in 2004, but only came back to it this year.

Really amazing, marios, color really brings your work to life, or death, whatever you prefer.

Haha,Thanks!!! It's my first attempt at color, but I'm working on a new one, and really having fun with the possibilities.

Thanks a lot, that is really nice to hear that emotions were evoked, I felt like a lot of emotions were being evoked while I was painting it.

The abyss of our souls is hidden on the surface of our dreams, I think.
:clap: Well done, well balanced, nice colours.

That quote sounds good to me. Thanks a lot, I'm just starting with oil painting, and it's my first one trying some color, which is extremely challenging, but incredibly fun.

Amazing work, dude!
I always envy on your patience for the details!
By the way, how long did it take you? ('Cos the fact that it's with oils and it takes much more time than acrylics)

Thanks! I've been working on this painting and another drawing, which isn't finished, symultaneously for the last three months, but I have a stupid job, and other crap, which disrupt me. Sometimes, I like to just do one small stroke and then see how the image is altered, because I am trying to learn, especially with light, so sometimes I'll be painting for hours, but it won't look like I did anything.

Oh, I completly understand, man!
Too good that you're working on another drawing, that makes me happy to hear and I guess that that would even more detailed than this one!
Excited to see it!

Thanks! It will be done relatively soon, I also just started a new painting, but it will probably take me awhile.

Working on two drawings very slow, I think one of them you'll like, or maybe I just hope that you will..
