Meanwhile, the artist shares the secrets of his art. First, he pasts out the pattern out of the threads, as a result, the oil paint falls on the texture, which retains the pattern until the end of the work. The textured pattern creates a light relief. It is slightly stronger than the texture of the canvas and with it creates its own image layer. The main picture is visible both in the twilight and from any angle. You do not need to look for the point where the picture is visible. The graphic basis of the depicted is always read.
