Acrylic on canvas 1.50 x 1.75 m.
These are some stages before. Of coarse I should have taken more foto's to really give an impression of the process, but once you are in it the act of painting is totally absorbing and you forget to take the camera. Especially in the beginning it was a great joy to make this painting. It was like an outburst of energy and playfullbess and feeling of freedom.
But then I felt a need to bring more structure to contain that intense energy, and then you lose some vitality and keep looking for the right balance. At differeent moment I could have stopped and may be should have but I didn't. So now it is like the above and I feel good with this balance of wild freedom and containment, altought that might change.
