A new painting

In my last post I mentioned how I was currently inspired by myth and magic, well, its coming through into my artwork a little now.

The other day I bought myself the biggest canvas in the shop, a huge 100cm x 150cm, lovely chunky box frame too. I drafted a drawing to fill my canvas, the idea was to do a frieze of some sort with lots of female bodies, intertwining, naked, writhing. The drawing turned out quite different and the images were soon based underwater. It turned out it worked better on a square frame so the big canvas will have to wait for another day.

I have really enjoyed working with more muted colours on this and natural flesh tones. Might have to do a whole series now!
