Painting Log (a.) 19.10.2017

I’ve tweaked one of the Folk Song backdrops… just added red circles. Sometimes such minimal additions, or subtractions, are all that’s needed. They set things in motion or prompt a dialogue between elements. The next stage will be to attach two smaller paintings to the backdrop and then treating the composition not as three separate elements but as one painting. I’m hoping a combination of the limited palette, the framing and perhaps additional painting across the backdrop and canvases will be helpful in unifying the piece.

The drying stage… red dots singing out against the green…
