I don’t know so much about these big epic pieces. It is quite a mission to keep it together for the duration. But I was so keen to do this painting with BIG rocks in the foreground. I planned this carefully and still had to redraw quite a bit – but I am quite pleased with how this is going. I have to put it aside for now but will come back to finish it off.
I wanted to make the foreground rocks lighter but then had to anchor them in the shadow so they got a bit heavier. I quite like the rocks behind the standing rasta-man dude.
