Making of “Swingout in Autumn”

Here’s a little documentation of how I made this painting: Swingout in Autumn. I find I use a lot more home-improvement and construction-grade materials than I do actual art supplies. Which allows me to be a bit more creative, and ensures that my materials are of very high quality and […]
