I think I can safely post this here now my partner has received.  Cheesy

I'm in the More Art, Less Craft 6x6" Canvas Swap and this was my contribution to the gallery of 6-inch awesomeness. Whilst waiting for our partners, I wondered how I could combine imagery from my recent travels through Austria and my impending partner's taste. Lucky for me, my partner said she really liked skulls and strangely enough one of the pictures that I took was of a marble skull wall plaque detail, which inspired this creation:

Its mostly acrylic, with a little pearlescent medium, PVA glaze and spray paint thrown in for good measure. The canvas has a 1" box edge, so the artwork wraps around the edges.

This is the sculpture that inspired the painting:

Its from the St Peter's Abbey in Salzburg. As you can see, the painting is not an exact replica but I am happy with the way it turned out.

I hope you all like it too, comments most welcome.

Happy Art-ing and Crafting

Your piece is a great representation of the equally cool picture you took!  I'm really liking that you chose a different colourway in your painting Smiley

I love it! The purple color scheme makes it really pretty, yet shadowy and creepy at the same time!
