NORWEGIAN BLACK METAL PART XVII - INTO THE MIGHTY FOREST
I started this painting from a detailed photo reference but didn't like where it was going. It was 'too bright' and didn't capture what I am always looking for when painting. I re-did the whole painting while playing Satyricon's 'Dark Medieval Times' and it turned out what I was looking for. A big one. 108 x 80 cm on wood panel in an antique restored frame.
It's tough to show the size and 'impact'of this one. The frame was once used as one of those 'freestanding' mirrors and the painting can actually be set up in a room as well!
