Sean’s Wall & Three Contd.
This is as far as I have reached on this painting. I am excited about it. Three of me – one fondling the other’s breast while the third angrily bars the viewer from peeping. Im toying with the idea of having a white dove, or a kitten near the first 2 who seem more serene. The angry third will quite possibly have a snake entwined around her outstretched arm, while the background will be thick with heavy, gaudy lotuses. Or so I think now. Will make it happen and see if it works. What say?
SEANS WALL (work-in-progress)
As a Sunday exercise I have started a wall painting at Sean Blagsvedt’s house. The idea is every weekend I’ll work on this wall and use it as a means to ‘stretch’ my hand and find away to tie up my sketches to my colour-play past. Will edit this post with examples of both these ‘styles’ soon.
I’m working with enamel paints and they have only the brightest primary shades imaginable. It’s going to be a challenge to make these colours work without looking too garish or kitschy you know. At this point it really looks like some ugly ‘dhaba’ graffiti.
The wall (its bigger than these pictures) is a long one in total about 35 feet wide and 12 feet high. It undulates and has corners that I am excited about. Has 2 doors set within it and I intend to cover the doors as well. The wall is part of his terrace deck and has some great light. It has a lovely view of the city too.
Its just a fun thing really…but perhaps something will come out of it.
