I have a bunch of 20″ x 20″ canvases that I am going to use as studies. They also will be paintings in their own right. I can work faster on the smaller canvases, taking days rather than weeks to complete. I plan to experiment with color. I am thinking of them as a “suite”. It will incorporate the figure as well as the angel motifs, having them influence each other but not necessarily in a linear way. A series, to me, seems to imply one done then the next, rather methodical. I want there to be a fluid or more organic relationship among these smaller paintings. At least, that is the plan at this point.
This is almost finished. Some of the yellow on the arm needs to be toned down
