I have always had a love for images of ancient ruins. I can't believe it has taken so long to do my own.
This study is the one most rooted in art history that I've done so far.

It has that romantic vision so often seen in the art from the past, it's airy with soft dreamy light and plenty of sky.

But again a hint of the excavator, modern machinery, to anchor it to the present.275


  1. This series is pretty interesting. It looks like it's been challenging. There's a draw to the old, perishing places, isn't there? Like how you've been doing these.

    1. Thanks Stephanie, yes, I am fascinated by the whole process, sad too to see it perish.
      It has been challenging so far. Still trying to figure out how to say what I see, hence the studies to really get familiar with it all first.
      Keep painting...
