Theorem painting

This painting is done with oils on velvet and called "theorem" painting.
I had to cut different stencils and placed each stencil on the velvet and used my finger to rub a little oil paint onto the  fabric. Slowly the image is build up in layers.
This kind of painting was very popular in Victorian times.
