The Source

3,750.00

The Source is an original oil painting on wood of 70 x 50 cm and is painted in the Old Master’s technique. Only one available

This is a revisiting of an old favorite, called “The Well” from 2001.

The theme here is the unconscious. The well or source being a metaphor for the inspiration that rises from the unknown depths or even descends from the heavens to meet on our personal plane. It is a reminder that we are not all what we think we are. We are much more and extend to the above and below, sometimes to the infinite. In this short video below you can see how the painting develops over time, from a loose sketch to a finished work.

Video

During the creation of this sister painting, we made a short time lapse video of the process (click link to go to YouTube). It presented a good opportunity to show you how a "sister painting" is actually made and how it is both similar but always slightly different to the original. In this short video we can see how the painting develops over time, from a loose sketch to a finished work. You may notice that it also shows a slight change in technique compared to the painting first conceived in 2001. It is still an accurate copy of my first work, but has a more lively touché. As this version of The Well has now got it’s own particular atmosphere, I have given it it's own title; "The Source".  I am very pleased with the final result, as it reflects some of how I have evolved as an artist over the years.
