Into the wilderness of Lesvos

I painted this piece with full dedication of 4 days, from early morning till going to bed, a piece of full of joy ^^

I scratched the canvas with a spatula and left some places blank, where you can see it in the little bush on the right-up in this photo above. And this is the way I made the dry shrubs, it made my process way faster and accurate in a way I wanted.

It had been a long time since I last painted. I felt how much I have missed it and had this piece pretty quick.
Hope you like it ^^,
