The Ancient Tomb
With this small acrylic tondo I was aiming for a Bocklinesque (the painter of the Island of the Dead) atmosphere...evoking a nocturnal, haunting sense of mystery, with suspense and yet tranquility. Whether I succeeded in all of that or not, I think it works as an interesting piece.
The Ancient Tomb, 2016, acrylic on plywood, 6.75" diameter.
