"The Gate Keeper"

Finally,this painting has been in my easel for a couple of months...
Just waiting to be finished.
the Lizard  and lock were actually easy to draw and really fun to paint.
I really struggled with the textured wall on the right side,that's what was keeping me
from not doing it.
I finally found some courage and decided to finish it,I really have to say that I'm not happy with the texture...
but since this was my firs attempt at painting something this complicated..
I had to crop the painting in order of getting rid off some of the not-so nice texture and it looks a lot better.
This painting was possible thanks to  William F. Martin,since I used his Photograp.
The Original photo is posted in the PMP website and you can see it here...


  1. The texture is lovely in this piece -- doesn't show any struggle you mention! Beautiful contrast of nature (wood, lizard) and man-made (the padlock).

  2. You wouldn't know it had been cropped if you hadn't said so, the painting looks great to me , and I like the different textures, very well done !
