Acrylic and charcoal on hardboard 24" x 24" It is hard to believe that an earlier stage consisted of bright cadmium red, yellow and cobalt blue - oh and plus ultramarine violet - just slapped on any old way. I hope it gives a kind of depth. It's funny - I didn't plan to paint this in this way. I intended a much more abstract output but the process kind of insisted itself. Technically, I kept working with charcoal in between acrylic sessions and then fixing the whole surface with Daler Rowney fixative. It fixes great on the acrylic surface. If it's technically risky then too bad - that is what I want to do. I'm still liking the asymmetry of faces as you can see and I loved working on this bigger size of support.
