In this version of Determination I wanted an aged feel. Like the Greco-Roman wall paintings with cracks and peeling paint.
A combination of pallet knife and brush work with an earthy color-pallet was used to achieve this texture.
Water based oils are a beautiful thing. You can get the same affect as traditional oils, but with soap and water cleanup and the paint is non-toxic.
Firstly, I did a drawn version; which is shown in my 'drawings' gallery. I then did a painted version before this one; which is in my 'horses and cowboys' gallery. That one is titled Painted Determination also, but is done entirely with a pallet knife and with a completely different color pallet.
