I started a really great challenge: to paint a half realistic, half surrealistic piece, using MPO.
I had an old, black and white photo-reference about myself, from age ca.6. I want to show the grey, boring, poor environment from the 50-ies in Hungary, when and where I was grown up. The right side of the painting I will paint ALL the nice dreams from a small girl. I had a problem with the composition: how I was thinking about it first, I was afraid: the painting will fall into two parts, because of the big contrast, BUT then I got the idea: at the bottom part all along I'll show the dark, the scary part of that girl, reading the fairy tales. So I hope I'll be able to realize least a part, what is now in my mind. I already started to cover the masonite with a transparent pure wax and added at the right side the first, color-layers. Now I have the problem again: how I will transfer my drawing, because there is already the wax layer...so I made a copy from my drawing and that I will pierce only on the main shapes, the rest will follow. Here is the first photo about the start. Wish me luck! :)
