Balance A. Oil on canvas. 40 x 35cm.
At the Mary Ward Centre the theme was Red. I had an old canvas stumbled in blue oil paint.
This shows through on some of the figure, giving the shadows depth. originally there was a plastic lobster where there now is a white book. The hot and cold colours thick and thin paint, detail and space gives the work the title ‘balance’, the A is for the model’s first name.
Some details showing the amount of paint used. A really varied application of impasto, stumbling and glazes.
