                                             Endless 170 x 130cm oil on canvas

 This very large painting is a development of a piece I made last year, (isolation; emotional toll,)

I used the same image and flipped it, which created a different feeling in the viewer. It is a very large canvas but the figure is the same size as in the previous piece. The figure and background are quite thickly painted and there are areas of texture which is to represent the fabric or the painting, and the world being riped and torn but more of the same is revealed.

And in the meantime on the zombie theme

Here is a drawing of a dead wren that I did yesterday.

DEAD WREN 50 x 50 cm charcol and coloured pencil on  brown paper (clear gesso.)

thicker paint

I painted thicker.... yes, I am pleased with the brush strokes, the strength, that they are 'the figure' not the woman being looked at.... but unfortunately, they look a bit like zombies.... ha ha.... which was not my intention. So, I added colour.... the seated one is next.

exploring the figure, a different look at life painting

So, what am I trying to discover? Here I am exploring, the interaction between model and artist, the model not being a 'thing', (I find no need for a naked person.) The model being a human, a person, Not Passive! The figure, not a specific gender, and the model in the space. In these paintings I am removing the colour to see how the paint and form intersects, trying to explore how the air is displaced. Also I am trying to discover, a sort of inner person, an inner energy that embodies the form and arches across the room to create a dialoge between artist and model that encompasses the time we take..... sort of thing.....I am trying to get the feelings I get in my gestural drawings. The paint is quite thick, but not thick enough, - perhaps when I have made more I will revisit these poses and make the paint thicker.
