So in answer to some recent queries on this, yes! I do paint bigger sometimes... In fact I welcome the opportunity.
Many thanks to the person who commissioned this! I'm especially excited as
it's going to reside in ROME! :-)
It's exciting to be able to work quite quickly and boldly on this larger surface
and I'm learning a lot - I hope! - from this challenge of translating up a smaller work.
I've been working on this in a loose and improvised rather than measured way,
both to avoid stiltedness and because the proportions differ, as you can see,
the larger version being taller.
The other two paintings partly visible are works in progress at
the early stages, both also on canvas paper.
I'm painting this on canvas paper, so it can be rolled and sent in a tube.
This cuts down on shipping costs considerably.

The title: "The Killer Wore Orange" reflects my love for late 1960s/early 1970s Italian "Giallo"" films; ornate, high chroma stylized thrillers which tend to have a heightened sense of colour and shape, labyrinthine plots and wonderfully intriguing, elaborate or bizarre titles.
Support: Canson Figueras multilayered, sized canvas paper. Dimensions: 56 x 42 cm, or 22 and 1/8 x 16 and 5/8 inches. Work date: April 29th 2010.
