Storm V

I had little time to paint today, but did manage to darken the rocks on the right hand side, and to figure out the position of the unfolded box on the left of the female in the foreground.

I spend a great deal of time simply looking at a painting while I make it, trying to figure out how it will create itself – where it wants to go. I mentioned yesterday that I needed a shape to lead the eye up to the male figure on the left, thinking then that it would probably be a rope, or a chain. The unfolded cube does the job beautifully though.

I decided to make the flying figure much smaller. He’ll be roughly where the armpit of the biggest figure in the sky hangs right now. 

Clue two. Four elements.
