Twittering Machine (progress)

Managed to put in a couple hours on this painting:

the twittering machine stage 2

I like how it is coming along. My current strategy is to start with very few colors and work it up, adding more and more, in layers, using glazes and allowing previous layers to ‘peek through’ the brush strokes. For those who are curious, ‘Twittering machine’ is a reference to a Paul Klee painting that I like (see here) and the upper half of the painting was inspired by 10,000 illustrations of medieval conceptions of hell (as well as this photo by Robert Dosnieau).
