Olga Number 2

Acrylic painting
Approx. 21″ x 15″ on 24″ x 18″ paper
This painting of Olga, a model from Russia, has a looser play on the large square stencils I’ve been using. The messiness, which is part of the process, didn’t overwhelm the painting (It could have). I found the dark blues over black to be quite satisfying from a color balance perspective. It also, unintentionally, gave the painting the effect of a person looking out a window with city lights reflected on the glass. There is also a bit of motion as the linear continuity takes the viewer in a spiral, but not the 1.618 the masters sought after. Well, I suppose you can do a little creative accounting to arrive at such a curve.
