I like this composition so far. I have been reading the new biography of Agnes Martin and I find what the artist has said about not intellectualizing when painting to be freeing in my own work recently.
I am having fun. I think I will revisit the LOC photos of athletes for further inspiration.
I have been working on these over the past month. I think I would like to add a bright background for the figure, but I am enjoying it now in its imperfect state.
