'. . .Death too rode the spiced winds of the East . . . '
This isn't an all-out speed paint but I tried to keep it as 'raw' as possible without it being sloppy. I typically work my pictures to death trying to get them to look perfectly smooth and often times I lose the emotion, ambience, and feeling of the image in the process . . . and I felt that this picture had a lot of atmosphere, so I didn't want to mess with it.
