This reminds me of the horsehead nebula. When I was making it I immediately saw the possibility and stretched it so it looked like this.
It has been primed and multiple layers of varnish have been added.
The back of this will be covered in black fabric. Please see the pictures for an example. If you would prefer the raw back, please leave a message in the order comments. The back will be raw with the “artist’s struggle” on the back, meaning messy.
******This has a major defect.******* I purchased a varnish brush and did not test before hand. As you can see it left some major brush marks. I added extra lighting to highlight this. It really does look like this if there is a direct concentrated light source. I am heavily discounting this piece.
I sanded this piece to make it less noticable, and it is, but, it is still there. The lighter background pictures are the “after”.
