This show tells a somewhat subtle story. Notice that through the window, a rainstorm with lightning is raging and in the room, the fire in the fireplace is large with a roaring blaze, but in the painting, it's sunny outside with a small fire in the fireplace. This depicts the same place, but at different times.
The techniques used include masking, PNG images, rain animation, lightning animation and the use of Visisketch Pro plus modifications by PTE. The intent was to tell a story with the painting. Hopefully, I was successful.
