The Crucifixion by GuitarWars The Crucifixion by GuitarWars
I learned quite a bit from doing this painting, it was a good study to copy one of the great Masters paintings. (Diego Velazquez). It taught me how they approached painting and allowed me to study their technique(I recommend copying the old Masters paintings) Velazquez originally painted his Jesus on the Cross in 1632 in Spain.

-Winton Oil paints
-painted on Masonite 11x14 inches
- over 100 hours to complete

Reminds me of Matthias Grunewald. That wasn't his real name, but the name tacked onto him. Tho he painted Catholic themes, he was Protestant. The Catholic commissions paid better.

This is awesome! 100 hours to complete were worth every minute of them.I did a drawing of the same painting wit only three hours.If I knew how to paint I would copy the masters too.

Beautifully moving piece and the fact you spent so long on it...wow. :love: My current project is going to take me over 100 hours as well, but it profoundly pales in comparison to this; this is just a pure delight to behold. :aww:

thank you for the comment and I look forward to seeing your current project.This one took me awhile cause I'm new at oil painting and there was techniques I would try that wouldn't work out and I would have areas that needed to be redone,but every projet seems to take me awhile.

You're very welcome my dear. :aww:

Oh wow really? :blushes: My current project isn't in oil but colored pencil--though I did do an oil painting a while back (11 years ago) in art class...might have to upload it just for spits and giggles. The simplest of areas to color however, still takes ages because of all the insane layers and colors I use. :XD: Like you, I've had to go back and already redo the color here and there so indeed, the time racks up quick. :faint:

For not painting for too long you very definitely have an astonishing gift in that medium. Painting isn't for everyone but you've definitely got it! =D

quite possibly very lucrative and if they catch you they remove all distractions and you can have art supplies, then they only make you go outside once a day.

like paradise for a painter!
