ไม้กวาด

One of sources of my inspiration we've got on the way from Krabi to Phuket in 2016. All passengers and staff of both HKT and OVB airports laughed at us, they did not let us take it to the cabin, it did not fit in luggage bags, but we brought it home intact.

The road between Krabi and Phuket had two lanes that time, they just started widening it:

Back to the subject, I had a panel of same size as ประเทศในดวงใจ painting and I also have same frame. So I just needed to paint a counterpart artwork.

Today I've finished black and white layer and put it on top of my shelf for drying:

Painting on the shelf

I named this painting ไปไหน. Logically this closes the frozen dreams series. There's no paintings in the middle of this series yet but I'm going to fill the gap! I have started a couple already.

I wouldn't like to show the work in progress, but here is the beginning:

Let the primer absorb oil

In most important cases like this I let the primer absorb oil as much as possible. A few hours later I removed excessive oil with a rag and started to paint.

I use sunflower oil. It's clear as water and does not get yellow. For comparison I put linseed oil at left. See the difference?
