Before painting, the canvas has initially been prepared with textures, ie: tissue paper, a torn page from a book, and open-weave scrim and textured sand, then I painted a ‘ground’ with tones of rich olive greens.
The subject is one of an overlay of womanly body parts in different positions, interlocking, to provoke ones thoughts…hense the title! ;-)
I have used a dry-brush motion of ochres and browns for the skin tones but have deliberately left the green from underneath showing through.
This gives the painting a luminancy quality which I wanted to achieve.
The torn ripped page is significant as I want to make one think about whether ‘woman and woman’ is so wrong, and that every page tells a story!!
