Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

1) The process of painting this variation was just as important (if not more) than the final painting.
The end result is not so much a painting in the conventional sense but the result of a battle - where (like the battles in The Mahabharata) all that remains are headless corpses, heads wearing jewellery and a river of blood.
I have added images of the first four stages before the painting was completed.
Looking at the photos I much prefer the first and second stages.
2) In retrospect I feel that the white marks on much of the canvas are a link to the calligraphic works of some of the Abstract Expressionists.
