That is the same painting in both of the photos. Seriously. The left photo shows what a painting I am now calling 'Existential' looked like two nights ago. On the right is what that painting looks like now.
What a difference.... and thank goodness for that! This was one of the paintings I mentioned in the previous post (though not the one I put in time out), and man, was it hideous! I mean really, so washed out and poorly planned...
This was another based on a Pack A.D. song ('Needles') and after such a terrible start I had to re-think my approach. This song is 'softer' than their other songs, but also edgy in a different way... the painting needed to show a certain amount of turmoil. The lyrics indicate a sunrise, so I spent a lot of time looking at photos of sunrises and even though I knew I didn't want to expressly paint a sunrise, I did want there to be a suggestion of one.
This was the final result and its a bit surreal.
