Angel

This is a Painter painting. I don't have much more to say. Ryan Wood gave me all kinds of good advice on finishing the thing, and it worked.
Thanks to Eric Francis for recognizing my site.

Nice work as always! I'll be the first to ask how you did the crackle effect.... a brush texture of some sort? Or by hand the hard way? I also enjoy the work of Marc Burckhardt who utilizes (non-digital?) techniques in a similar way. Thanks!

Beautiful.

The background is an almost perfect representation of my white raku crackle glaze. Very impressive. I love the glancing down gesture and the way that the crackle over lays the wings. Fabulous!

Thanks guys,
The crackle and other texture are texture photographs set to overlay with the oppacity turned way down, then I did a little painting of highlights along the top edges to add depth.

Great piece Dave!
it's nice to see you bring some elements of narration in your work, it's quite unusual, but excellent
and you managed the textured part very well!
bravo!
