This painting was such a challenge. The painting ‘Narcissus’ was very straight forward in comparison. I think this painting was in the process of being completed for 5 or 6 weeks.
It just wouldn’t reach a stage that I was happy with. I would paint with acrylic and then go back to spray paint. The painting would be too dark and then I would paint over sections, wait a day and repaint. It was a great feeling when it was at a point where I was happy with the overall feeling of the painting. It think the initial problem was I painting it too flat and it need to look more three dimensional than the small size paintings.
