A Years Work. by hyper-tom A Years Work. by hyper-tom
A YEARS WORK 2008.

Acrylic on board... 46.5cm by 70cm... (lifesize)


this is a much better image of the painting i have just finished... i could not get a good picture before because it was so glossy.....

so if your wondering, i went over it with satin varnish to tone it down, to take a photo. now i have taken a photo i will re apply the gloss surface....

colours are not perfect here, bit too red.

the title is maybe a little deceptive, it took 3-4 weeks to paint, but is about the past year i have had... hense the name.

This is a painting i have decided to do which reflects the past year of my life. its a quick time out from my current series. plus fancied a portrait.

i have posted some close ups which help give an idea of the level of detail.[link] [link]
check out the close ups.....

thanks

dear hyper tom, good trick for photographing shiny paintings; shoot it from the side at an angle where there's no glare. Upload and than turn the trapezoid distortion of the edges back into a rectangle with photoshop; works for me

Do you mean it took an exact whole year to do or do you mean you worked on this throughout a whole year
