This way of painting is much slower but I enjoy it much more.

I picked a spot on the painting and I’m working out from that spot trying to paint as accurately as possible. I enjoy painting this way because it keep my focus, and I feel that I’m constantly getting closer to the truth of what I’m painting in the most direct way possible.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
