The Old Blue Wooden Door, Safed.


Vacationing in Safed, I became fascinated by this old door with its weathered look and faded paint. The wear and tear look gave me a chance to use dry brush technique, scraping the brush over the textured paper to achieve the effect of peeling paint and flaked woodwork. The exposure of varying layers of paint gives the door a mysterious history.
