An experimental impasto oil painting of a figure in a Street in Waterford, Ireland. I used a palette knife to create the effects of light and shadow, along with some megilp medium. The megilp sets up pretty quickly, being an alkyd based medium and the surface becomes a little tacky after a while, but 3-4 days to dry.

Figure in a street, by Joseph Mahon
at 5:32 AM
It's never too late to learn new things, it is often said. I have been painting all my life, and decided to embrace technology and show my art work online. I love watercolour painting and oil painting. The subjects that attract me are varied, from a landscape to a seascape. Genre scenes of everyday life, beach scenes and figurative.
