All these works are in a state of flux. Will they ever be truely finished? Not sure.
A self portrait from real life. I like the idea of a constantly aging self portrait. Sort of not Dorian Grey / self made mirror.
The kids had a lot of near black paint left over… so I used it up. It’s strange to spend x5 longer on a work with the model not being there. The idea is to bring the composition. Maybe some glazes next…
I like the glam rock aspect of the model which explains the golden glitter. An urge to make him into a modern version of one of Matisses langourous ladies in stage set orientalism.
This is called ‘My Fair Lady’. This may well be finished. The mixture or resolved and unresolved is fun.
This is called ‘The Three Graces Waiting For THe Storm’. Unfortunately it’s on thin paper stock.
