Expedite ~ Aphrodite! - An Oil Painting Preparation Demo by 

This is to show folks what an oil painting photo looks like when it is coming together….lots of photos to be “stitched” together “by hand”.

At this point, I am packing boxes for our house move and so I will save this PSD file ready for work when we move in…. well….I might just squeeze in a little more work on Her before we move….

Love to all.

My work is eclectic, pychological and profound and hopefully, attractive and beautiful for hanging on your wall… or sticking on your iPhone as a case… enjoy!

    This is fascinating (and very beautiful), Simon!

  • Mieke, I remember your birth chart was full of very strong Venus placements….Venus is Aphrodite’s vehicle…. thank you for those very lovely words! This picture is much like your work in essence because of that…and you also.

    Thank you for sharing this with us…

  • Hiroko, I am glad to share this, so many artists talk of “stitching” photos together this shows the start of that process….and the need for it… Have a lovely day!
