Numbers by painting III

I’ve done quite a lot of sketches now for the numbers series. The canvases were all ready to go by Friday morning, so I started laying out some of the drawings. By evening I painted on the first layer of burned sienna onto the canvas on numbers four and five. I really like the symbol for the number four, with its inward and outward pointing arrows.

These would make excellent tattoos. I might have to contact the excellent Pat Fish.
