Verdi's opera "Don Carlo" features a duet between two characters Carlo and Roderigo that is one of the catchiest tunes I've ever heard. This diptych could be subtitled "Carlo and Roderigo".
Mixed media on clayboard, 10 x 10" each. Each piece started with a few layers of acrylic for texture. Then some gestural figure drawing in pencil. Next I stenciled acrylic medium onto the paintings. Finally I added rice paper collage elements, some water color pencil drawing and more acrylic.
