Evil Genius

Here is my Evil Genius painting. Cranked the heating right up for this one to get the heaviest impasto I could achieve. Popped him in the freezer at one point to cool and harden before hitting him again with softened oil pastel.

I was really surprised at my choice of colour for this piece, and really chuffed with the result. It’s not easy to see the rough surface here, but I let the texture of the hot pastels model most of the forms. I am loving the painterliness which comes with working spontaneously and quickly but in long shifts. This makes soft areas like this chap’s left arm in particular which moves me by it’s lack of pissiness (pissinesslessness?). Getting really excited by this flow of characters.
