The Three Anatomists
I'm starting a new painting. This is on large, gessoed paper, I think it's 18" x 24". I'm using an old photo for a source image, but liberally improvising. I like putting in the background, layering up a lot of grimy, ochery, umbery paint. I like letting the accidents happen where they will happen. It is a way to approximate the spirit of old photography without being slavish about reproducing it.
