Love on the Brain
Oil on linen, 36 x 48"
Painting begins with a layer of acrylic on linen, followed by lots of pencil drawing. Layers of oil paint then alternate with more drawing. The initial inspiration for the painting was from a drawing I did at the Tom Sachs show "Space Program: Europa". (see the ipad drawing at the bottom of the page) Painting title comes from the Rihanna song.
Ipad drawing. Final composition of "Love on the Brain" was inspired by this drawing, although I turned the composition on its side.
