In the courtyard of the Hussite bastion

The oil painting shows a piece of historical heritage from 1470. A Hussite bastion built of stone masonry. It was part of the original walls in the town of Bílina.

Once, on a hot summer day, I went to a restaurant for a cup of coffee. I looked around curiously while waiting for my order. Soft music, empty tables with menus and flowers growing in the stones. Time off for employees. Just random guests like me.

Harmonious atmosphere in soothing colors. And I was only interested in the door leading to the building. Heavy, aged wood with hints of mahogany. I don't think this door survives from 1470, but in any case it is a symbol of the intermingling of history and modernity.

For painting, I use high-quality canvas with a proportional composition of cotton and synthetics. I usually use a three to four layer technique. After it has completely dried, I glue the canvas to the panel using a special transparent double-sided adhesive film. As a final point, varnished with a protective varnish.
