acrylic, 36 x 48 inches
This really wasn't how I intended the painting to turnout. I have included some process images and the references photos.
It was at this point that something didn't sit right with me and I couldn't pinpoint it, other than the fact that it didn't feel like 'Me'. Too much brushwork and not enough palette knife, maybe. In any case I wanted to change it up.
This wasn't right either. It was too busy and I felt each side was competing against each other. I decided to tone down the left side. And thus begun my negative painting.
