Iron paintings

Iron painting is a special artwork created by a blacksmith in AD 1600 or so, well known to the world because of its unique styles and exquisite technology; its painting process is very complicated and very long, firstly beat out many iron lines and iron sheets with different shapes, then weld them together, and color them black, red, brown and so on.  37 more words



a little more work on this today.

The colour is  a bit drab. Got to jazz it up a bit.


difficult just means it takes more time

loading a truck

Back to my logging paintings, this still needs lots of work. There should be a pile of logs on the right side. The sky and trees are not too bad.

Redwinged blackbird
