An oil painting that is amazingly simple in composition and subject, but hauntingly riveting in execution: Chiaroscuro III by ~valkenburg. The title, Chiaroscuro, refers to the strong lighting contrasts used in the painting. Caravaggio is well known for his genius with this painting technique.
okay just browsing around the site because I can and I stopped scrolling around when it came to your painting.... As I look at it, I'm thinking "Wow! Whoever took that Picture is a really good photagrapher..." However, when I clicked on it, it ended up being a wonderful oil painting!! Holey Moley, You're good!!!
