Final piece at the top, exploration works underneath. Notes not included due to illegible hand writing.
I wanted to try and branch out, to get away from the figure, and tried a whole bunch of different elements in the exploration bit. I didn’t feel like I was getting anywhere so I revisited the figure–sort of–in my final piece. Danny commented that it looked like some bizarre organism, or tissue matter. I don’t know if saying it’s a figure helps interpretation at all, but I’m not unhappy with the final result. I’d maybe like to revisit the idea in oil, or on something other than the wood chip board I was using, the texture certainly wasn’t something I had planned for, although I would really like to explore the texture in another setting.
