Firebird by StephanusEmbricanus Firebird by StephanusEmbricanus
So in between after all that headstuff, here is a surreal work again. Something like back to the roots, a layer-painting as I started with my first exhibition. For those who want to know more about the techniques I'll post a "making of" with some descriptions.

ca. 175 mm X 240 mm
Tempera with egg and oilcolour

Very mythical creature full of fantasy! Again, I love the colors and the volume... it's all the little highlights (eg. on the eyelids) that make it come alive, right?

Year, the Firebird flies everyday from the east to the west so there where time enough for us humans to develop some myths. :D

I like it also :) when I started, the composition looked a bit simple and while doing it I destroyed some parts by working too fast, but it has got a nice colour-composition :D

The colors are so rich - that layering process definitely has an awesome effect!
He is very cool :)

That's right, the effect is that the light shines through the colour and gets reflected from the background that makes the colour shiny :)

Gorgeous colours as usual, and I love how you've painted the feathers, thick and solid rather than delicate.

It was a word me and my friend made up for someone that's obnoxious... Not that I'm even remotely unpleasant. :paranoid:
