Snakebite


This one is more of an experiment. I painted it on an old stretched canvas I had laying around, and I was struggling with that. Little different direction, not very successful. I mentioned a painting I was struggling with in my last post, and this was it. Robert Hunt would call this "snake bitten" meaning that it's poisoned and dieing and there's nothing you can do, so you you should just move on. It's hard to just let something go when you've sank a couple days effort into it. I tried my best to save it. I think it does have some nice qualities. I like the grimy look that I associate with the city, and the light in the widows looks good with the toothbrush spray technique. But, overall, not the best.
