The Circle Is Unbroken with dark marks added, oil painting

This painting isn’t finished I now realise. It is the culmination of my Medea work and every mark and gesture reflects that. I felt the airy lightness was lovely of the previous stage, but the darkness is very much part of the story, hence the further working. I will know instinctively when to stop and it isn’t yet. I’m really enjoying the plastic quality of the oil paint. It talks back to me.
