Small format Trying to Contain the Anger #4

In this version I isolated the face and upper body of the figure. The colors I used were mostly warm. I wanted the position of the hands and the face to convey emotion, not the vigorous brushstrokes or saturated colors I  usually use. I am really happy with this figure but I am not sure there is a sense of strong emotion here.

I have done 5 of these smaller paintings. I started out with the idea of a suite but they seem to have developed more as studies. I like them however they are labeled. I have 1 more small canvas that I’m thinking of something different. And then I have the larger canvas 30″x 30″ that I’ll probably do one last figure on it.
