Gone from just black and white to black, white and blues! Having compositional issues with the larger square piece I started on a piece of mounting card - much more robust and less 'dimpling' when wet. Compositonally I must NOT split the painting into halves etc - need to be careful with the way the structure works so it is not divisive.
For the newest version - I had decided to try to put the collage on, roughly working out lights and darks and desired textures, then build up a rhythm within the painting following lines and textures provided by the base layer.
