Further fleshy paintings

After incorporating the coke can into fleshy painting, I decided to test this idea out with other items so I’ve used a dollar bill (printed out), and a pressed leaf. I don’t really like these outcomes because there’s something about the brush strokes I don’t like: potentially because I don’t feel they flow very nicely and I’d prefer there to be a more distinctive whiter area closer to the edge.








This larger image is of this type of work on a sheet of deformed Perspex, because I wanted to see how the brush strokes would appear without a ground to conceal them. I do like this one because it’s different and I can experiment with different backgrounds to make this idea as effective as possible. I have tested it out on top of some photographs, which looks quite artful but I ended up preferring it layered on top of another larger painting where I was practising this painterly technique. I like this because the deep flesh colours of the large painting emerged the same type of shades, which built up the effect.
