Original Oil Paintings on Canvas – Mr Pilgrim
This dark composition was one of my first efforts in original oil paintings on canvas. I particularly enjoyed adding the finer ‘vine’ details at the base of the tree. Not really one for the kids though.
I created it without a real plan for what I wanted to achieve unlike future work but the end result was achieved quite well. One of the major drawbacks was that I had not created a background or outline before I started work on the skull tree itself. This meant that I had to add the background carefully afterwards taking care not to accidentally touch the already finished skull.
