I haven't painted since my trip to Norfolk in April - and I still haven't shared all the pieces I finished while I was there - so I was feeling a little down when I unearthed these this evening.
I painted these in Cambridge, probably not long before we moved, and forgot about them.
Two 8' x 8' canvases, gesso primer slashed with a putty knife, acrylics and watercolour washes
I don't know. They're okay, I guess. I was trying to create impossible creatures - things that might look real at first glance, but then wrong on closer inspection. I succeeded at that, anyway, but the execution falls short of the vision.
My paintings rarely ended up how I first envisioned them. I really love these. They have a cave painting quality that I like a lot. I think you succeeded too! These could easily be the illustrations scribbled in a letter from one of Lovecraft's fevered heros.
