New oil painting - «The last home of the forgotten souls»

«The last home of the forgotten souls» oil painting by Gregory Avoyan
The last home of the forgotten souls
oil on hardboard, 50x70 cm, 2013

Here is my new painting, which started back in 2011. I was on a bike trip together with my wife and we came to an old cemetery by the big lake. It served as a burial ground since 19th century, and it kept the feeling of something old in everything, from thomb stones to fence. There's also an old orthodox church close.

After the trip i made a drawing you see below. It's not a sketch from life, but more of a memory-based drawing, with more or less established composition - i wanted to make it an ink drawing. But soon i got the idea to paint this...
