Oil and bitumen on board 60 X 60


Bitumen paint is made to repair a leaking roof. It is dreadful stuff to work with, sticky, stinking and as black as can be. It is like the dregs of a barrel of crude oil, but when dried on a painting it can be a sublime, rich, and deep black.  Pure black like Japanese lacquer, but with a velvety softness.
