Anger

I have just completed my first large canvas, entitled "Anger".

It is a departure from my portrait series and builds on the style I am developing, most obvious in my painting from earlier this year, "Metamorphosis". (See "Metamorphosis" and earlier paintings in this post)

"Anger"
 
 
I previewed the original sketch and what the hieroglyphs mean in a post last month. Not all my sketches become paintings but I very strongly got that this one was to be so.
 

Detail of the hieroglyphs

The glazing effect of the glyphs does not come off well in the photo, but in the painting it is spectacular.

The piece is acrylic on canvas and is 120cm x 153cm.
