My first oil painting (replicating Disney’s Alice background)

Alice's background (c) 1951, Disney

This is an emulation of one of Disney’s 1951 “Alice in Wonderland”. As this is the first one, believe me there are some “imperfections”. So, it is not on sale. It took 4 months to make (August-December). Actually, the final touches were done today! So, the painting is ready in a very perfect day! December 21st, 2012. It was a step by step process. First: If you work on a big Canvas like this one, you usually divide in as many square areas as possible in order to facilitate the underlying rough drawing in which you start the first brushes. This first experience was wonderful for me because I could feel how the oil works! How the oil dissolves in order to achieve that colour you want! Furthermore, the capacity of recreation in Oil technique is quite something! While in Aquarela and Gauche, and mainly in Acrylics, you have to brush all in a hurry, working with Oil is quite different. The ink lasts days to dry! So, you can work on it on and on and on, improving texture and the spectrum and the degree of colours! I hope this very first painting can be the one of many works to come!
