I really enjoy painting landscapes and still lifes, as well as the more fantastical work, so hopefully will be posting more of these as they are painted. Actually, this one is from last year, and was painted to keep my hand both in landscapes and oils, so to speak. I've painted in acrylic often (more so than oils), but I actually prefer oils. There are advantages to both, for instance glazing goes MUCH quicker with acrylics, since they take a fraction of the time that oils take to dry. But oils just feel more organic, blend much easier than acrylics, and naturally have more depth and richness to the color.

Here are some specs...

An original oil painting of the site of the famed Incan city high in the Andes Mountains of modern day Peru. It is 9"x15" (image area is 8.5"x14.5") and painted on double gessoed 100% rag board.
