Doors, gates and stairs

Door and gates have something special, they are not just door or gates, they represent something more than that. When looking at a closed door, you’ll always wonder what’s behind it. Gates are in close connection with passing in other worlds, new beginnings and mystical experiences.

Usile si portile au ceva special, ele nu sunt doar usi sau porti, ele reprezinta ceva mai mult decat atat. Cand te uiti la o usa inchisa, te vei intreba mereu ce se afla dupa acea usa. Iar portile sunt in stransa legatura cu trecerea in alte lumi, cu noi inceputuri si experiente mistice.

I found a photo browsing Pinterest (again, yay!) and stopped to check the stairs and candles showing under that flat arch. I tried to make it look as close as I could to the original photo, but then I realized that I really don’t want it to be that close to the “real thing”, and added some personal touches in the process.

Am gasit o poza navigand pe Pinterest (yay, da, din nou!) si m-am oprit sa observ scarile si lumanarile care se intrezareau sub arcada dreapta. Am incercat sa ilustrez cat mai fidel ceea ce era in poza, dar am realizat repede ca nu vreau sa semene atat de bine cu ce era in poza, asa ca am adaugat cateva tuse personale.

A basic sketch is all I need to get started, so after sketching with an Inktense pencil (Bark 2000) I added white acrylic paint and basically played with the shades of gray.

O schita minimala este de ajuns pentru a incepe, asa ca dupa ce-am schitat cu un creion Inktense (Bark 2000), am adaugat acrilic alb si m-am jucat pur si simplu cu tonuri de gri.

Nothing better than acrylics to cover and ‘uncover’ the paper over and over again until you are satisfied with the result! And here I am getting close to the final details..

Nimic mai potrivit decat acrilicele pentru a acoperi si a “descoperi” hartia din nou si din nou pana cand sunteti multumiti de rezultat! Si aici ma apropii de final..

A little bit of yellow in the candles and white acrylic paint to magnify the light effect from the burning candles and working a little bit more on the flat arch made me call this page done.

Un pic de galben in lumanari pentru a amplifica efetul de lumina de la lumanarile aprinse si unele modificari la arcada dreapta si pagina e gata.
