Stage 4 of painting









Having really enjoyed painting this piece I feel I am not ready to come to its conclusion and have decided to expand it by means of creating a Polyptych.
Whilst simultaneously researching into truth in art as part of my dissertation (titled using the quintessential self- referential paradox I Always Lie) domains of authority, frame as paregon, and its internal and/or external limits are brought into play.

Stage 3 of painting

Continuing to work into the surface, using gloss as pictured above (which eventually dries clear.) Gloss appears to intensify the colours and create depth.

Here the gloss has dried overnight, and I continue to scumble over the surface with dry paint, and then glaze over areas using diluted washes of colour. The reflective quality of the surface has not really been captured in this photograph, so below are some more images of how the painting looks when movement and light comes into play.
