Listen 33-35 WIP 01

By
Some progress on the latest Listen piece which is a three part portrait triptych (each is 20" square). These will show each step of my painting process in the final result (warm ground, white paimbura underpainting and layered colour). The gold leaf is new to the arsenal. LOVE the results - was intimidated having never attempted gilding before (as well the complexity of the ornamental halos). Two parts practice / experimentation and one part throw caution to the wind... on to some colour. These will be for my upcoming November solo show with Westland Gallery in London.
Feisty today - badass, bring it on. 💀😈

Wow! It's fascinating to see the "first stage".

I really enjoy the composition, and the clash between the ancient and modern iconography.  Can't wait to see the finished product!
