Artwork Description

The more expressionistic I let myself stray the more fun I seem to have. Something about art taking itself too seriously that spoils the illusion, at least for me. And once again, more opera on the radio, a big baratone voice that inspired me to conjure up an ancient wizard and this misty island drama. I keep telling myself that it's time to go back to using oils but it's getting harder to believe that I should.

Very dynamic. I love the way it makes my eye travel from the powerful crouching man to the wizard, along the row of cobras, and back to the girl. Great work and planning.

Thanks, Uwe! Your comments always make my day.

Thanks, Rita. Using oils just makes some things easier to do for me, like soft edges and sculpting and knife work. I'm working around that though. Appreciate your visit.

Great art, Walt. Where would be the difference if you had done this with oils?

Fantastic work, Walt, classical fantasy, stirring stuff!

Too cool, seems you master acrylics now as well as your oils, and ummm, they don't smell and dry faster and at the end both are just pigments. Think it´s just what you personally perfer more to work with, the results are really fantasic with both mediums. I just hope to see an original of your work some day.

Walt, your stuff has great action and stylistic looking forward to a larger, more 'finished' piece!

Art at its best.
