‘Dancer’ Oil on Italian linen (35cmx50cm) Increased the tonal contrast of the painting, strengthening the white areas and saturating some of the black bits. Trying hard not to overwork the painting or loose the spontaneous mark-making. Came across a painting I didn’t recall doing a few years ago of Wild Peacock (60cmx60cm), our fabulous deli in Stellenbosch. It’s painted in oil on a cotton canvas

Started a small study (35cmx50cm) for the dancer, on a previously used Italian linen canvas, which adds an extra dynamic. Painted in black (actually a dark grey mixture of Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Umber). The small size a tad challenging. Hoping to achieve a dramatic painting that bursts from the canvas. Not often that I have multiple paintings going on at the same time.
