Cinnamon Breath by zancan Cinnamon Breath by zancan
Breath in.
From the day I started to paint this canvas, to the day I put the last stroke, I went through so many moods. From the greyish days of boredom, to the glorious moments of love that I didn't expect. Her wind has blown so strongly, that crazy storm that blew everything up, that at last calmed down.
Breath out.

Cinnamon Breath, oil paint on canvas, about 5 month work.

The scent of her Cinnamon Breath wafts over his shoulder as they make their way down into the ruins. The lush foliage giving way to crumbled stones and cryptic remains of stone guardians. What will the find in this imaginative work of art by Michael Zancan? That is left up to your imagination. ( Featured by lolly )

wow I relate to this so much. I've lived in the innercity for my whole life but have always had a love affair with the woods. Someday I hope to escape for good, it's just a matter of convincing people to come with me ...

You make the females so beautiful.
I don't know why it's called Cinnamon Breath,
I'll assume she has the cinnamon breath.

wow, how did you get that translucent effect? Paint thinner and white? I absolutely love this piece, awesome work!

No ... :) You have to repaint the background, with opaque paint, but by mixing with your color a tiny amount of white to make them look paler. If the cloth has multiple layers piled up, then your color must have more white. No transparent trick here, only using the right color to paint what you see.
