crocodile. Acrylic and ink. 40" x 40" canvas.

crocodile, originally uploaded by P Brown.

Finished today, this is the biggest canvas I have produced so far.
I began with the black ink along the bottom and the piece grew from there. The space available on the large canvas really affected my approach here and I found I was not afraid to "force" a result.

The title came about once I started adding the vermillion accents, which, although very small, really stand out against the green and pale turquoise, like blood or glinting eyes! Then the whole thing became a poem called "crocodile".
