This is the development from this original drawing. I have been experimenting with graffiti techniques and imagery lately which has been tons of fun. I have been a big fan of street art for years. this is a variation of stenciling techniques with tribal style flames but reversed out to meld with my ochre technique.
I am a bit too close to this piece right now to say whether I like it or not (as is usually the case). it’s a little different to the one I had envisaged but it is pretty powerful looking.
I am going to revisit this same pose using the impasto technique and spray. I really shouldn’t spray paint anymore, but it looks so good! the glossy finish, the sharp lines, the gradients..
