Artist's description:

A rough looking character! The well-dressed old pirate walks a bit unsteadily along a sandy path with his rum/wine bottle in hand. He is accompanied by his thieving little monkey who has snagged a gold watch along the way. Perhaps meandering back to his ship or tracing his footsteps to a buried treasure.
I began the painting process with the inspiration of an actual pirate re-enactor. I use an indirect process where I begin by blocking in the colors with acrylics, then in oils. Once I have the basic forms I begin to layer depth and details through transparent and semi-transparent colors in a process that took several months.
The layering creates a depth and texture for the elegant brocade vest, fancy jewels and beads, sword handle, pistol and the deep lines and wrinkles of the pirate's face.
Background image is painted to wrap around sides.

Materials used:

acrylics, oils, canvas on wood frame, varnish, hanging wire
