    Old Friends (Updated)

    I have updated this doing a "refined version." I hope I haven't ruined it because that's always a danger. I just made the characters a little less rough.

    Sort of a fantasy thing of a different world where old friends have a chance meeting on an old path in the woods and where everything is really as it is here more or less.

    First I brought in one of my older paintings in on a layer, "Better days" it was called and turned it upside down and mashed it up and lot's of other stuff. Then I drew 3 light circles for heads and took it from there.
    Using mostly Oil brush. Greatly thinned oils with insta dry turned on. Many, many layers at times. Hope you like it.

    Excellent painting !!!
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.
