Proper titles for my paintings are often elusive, so I'll just name it after what inspired it, for now.
This was mostly just an experiment with various techniques. I had been out in the garden planting cabbages... I thought the texture and patterns of the cabbages were interesting, and wanted to use them in a painting. Also, I use water soluble oil paints, so I wanted to see what effects I could create by lifting paint off the canvas, rather than simply adding to it. Using the oil paints almost like watercolours. I drew a figure (based loosely on myself) on the canvas and just started adding paint with no real plan in mind.
It's been through various, very different looking, stages. Stages where I hated it and stages where I loved it. I'm happy with the end result, though there are some niggling problems I could have avoided had I not given in to frustration and rushed it. I'll probably go back and fix them when the current layer has dried.
