Artist's description:

This is a large horizontal oil painting with 6 futuristic fantasy heads. It is 2 metres long, so it would be great above a sofa, or a bed.

First I intended to make a 'normal' group portrait with 6 heads, but as I went along the shapes and patterns became more and more obscure. Once it was finished it reminded me of the ancient murals that are found in caves, especially because of the red shades that I used. Hence the title The Ancient Ones.

The background is painted with acrylic paint in several transparent layers. The heads are thickly applied onto the canvas; you can very well see the relief. I love to mix the colours directly on the canvas, in stead of mixing them up front on my palette.

You will receive the artwork ready to hang, framed in a wooden floating frame and wired on the back. A certificate of authenticity is included. The canvas is stretched on wooden bars.

Shipped insured in a wooden crate, fully protected. The wooden crate is custom made by a certified cargo company, therefore it may take 7 working days or more before the painting can be shipped.
