The Golden Bowl VI

img_7302-copy.jpgI continued to build the first layers of the painting by adding an en grisaille layer to the flesh and beginning to build the composition. I think the black rectangular area behind the central figure will become a megalith – whatever it becomes, it’s good to have the dark area there, bounded by 1.62 and the top flat edge of the pentagram composition. 

I plan to sketch composition notes for the next big painting tonight. I think I can safely predict megaliths and / or alchemical symbolism.

    If you could pick one image that describes your inspiration for the next big painting what would it be?…or would it be safe to say you already answered that with the “megaliths and / or alchemical symbolism.”
