painting fight instead of fighting paint



Fight: stage 2.   part of the current series


Since yesterday's dip, things are on the ascendant, having said that there was much looking, thinking and avoiding this morning before actually committing myself with some very sloppy oil paint. 
All five are now at this second/third stage and look promising. 
Maintaining the energy is crucial, any slickness, any feebleness or safety will ruin the work so far. 
Boldness and belief.


The structure in this piece is of interest. The body parts of course are of unequal distribution and mostly disconnected. The body colour is pale and pink. Yet the square with a circular composition of whirling bodies above the floor spikes somehow works.
