How to paint that mysterious time between day and night? Cameras are unable to capture it nor did I see many artworks that would manage to do it. Shapes dissolve, colors shift, everything changes so quickly at that time. I think figuring this out shall be my long term goal.

I was so fascinated by the bare trees above ancient tombs of Olsanske cemetery. These trees, not the graves are what actually make the place so creepy.
When you compare the two paintings you can notice that I made some small changes after I returned to the studio.

Enjoy some insight into what had to be done to finish this painting.
I was always captivated by the absorbing darkness of dense pine forest. When you stand on the right spot, it almost feels like it is going to devour you. I wanted to paint that thing. And this summer, I finally got around to do that. Bellow is a moderate size oil study. I also took lot of photos for aid.
The idea I had in mind was little bit different though. So I did what I always do when I want to do some deep exploration – digital painting. This was the sketch that I decided to go with.
And this image is a snapshot of what I painted after the first session. My goal is always to fill the canvas as soon as possible, this was also the case.
And the final painting. Executed in oils on 150x100cm canvas. You can see that I made some further changes in composition along the way.

Fourth and not yet last installment of Taiwan sketches. I must say that ink has really become my new favourite medium for sketching both outside and in the studio.
