Evolution of a Small Painting

by Manjula Padmanabhan in New Work
I thought it might be interesting to keep a record of this painting as it evolved. I find I often like the least complete versions of a painting, when it’s just a fuzzy, unfocused idea in dream-colors. It’s a bit like preferring a little fluffy chick to the fully developed bird. The thing has got to change and grow. The final version of the painting is in the Oil and Acrylics gallery.
