I tried to use more paint in this picture since I've been tending to apply it rather thinly but for some reason I'm not entirely pleased with the effect.

PAINTING ON LOCATION TODAY

My latest oil painting, completed on location, Geology Dept University of Western Australia in two hours. Oil on 22.5x30cm (9"x12") canvas on wood panel

Oil paint on 30x30cm (12"x12") canvas stretcher. WIP 1 March




My painting "Pilgrims Gate" is based on the following black and white photograph probably taken c1910 in Hiafa, Israel, at one of the Baha'i shrines on Mount Carmel close to the shrine of the Prohet Elija. The photograph was published in a book "The Mystery of God".

I am not sure if it is ethical to exhibit or sell this painting. I will have to consider the legal and ethical issues
