Painting project of ” Odyssey ”


These are the first steps of a new painting project I called Odyssey, which is a picture I found, and wanted to
reproduce, with slight changes and an extra twist added to it, which I’ll clarify at the end of the work.

I’m posting it for the same reasons I did the ” guardians of the city ” only this time, I don’t want to drag the
work on, for a year. I’m doing it now, to push myself faster ­čÖé
I hope you will like it, have a lovely weekend!

I found the picture somewhere and instantly felt a kinship, it was MY style of art. I had what you call in French ” un coup de coeur ” for it ( meaning

falling in love with something ) and wanted to get to work immediately.

I finished it in small ( a rectangular 24 cm wide = 9.4 inches, 30 cm long = 11.8 inches ) called it ” Guardians of the city ” and felt it a challenge to dive into deeper waters and go bigger ( 80 cm =
31.4 inches ) in square version this time.

It was my first Big painting! Meanwhile I have done many others but, this one just seemed to lag behind…

Every time I worked on it, I saw all the million of details to be refined… I got sometimes discouraged by the magnitude

of the ” job ” and once you start thinking of it as a job, you pause and remind yourself why you had started in the first place with painting.

I waited for the moment of inspiration, which disappears as quickly as it comes ( I call it ” frenzy for… ” it shows up in bouts ) the adventure turned out to become a non-ending assignment.
