I have started a new series of paintings with a different approach. I always start my paintings with a few lines. This allows me to discover new characters every time. I prepared this canvas first with modeling paste and chose a background color to begin a blue monochrome painting, and then added some dabs of ocher, pink, white and orange. The black outlines accentuate the shapes and brings a lot of contrast. The characters are split and sort of cut out as to discover several facet of the subject. This oil painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.
