Oil and Hands

This is a bit of a change from the Cambodia pictures but I decided I needed a break from painting monochrome. The influence was from Kwang Ho Shin’s paintings of hands, feet and limbs. I wanted to try the same sort of abstract representational style.I wante to be able to play with the viscosity of the paint, especially trying to water down the Oils as much as possible. The mixing of so many colours oes make the paint look muddy, I wanted the colours to mix but not into a browning colour as seen here. I will try less colours in future.
